In the 68 sub-division centres of Mescom, 58 AC charging stations are being set up. At present, 20 have begun providing service, including five in Mangaluru city. The work of 30 more stations is in progress.

PM Modi has given a target of producing 500 gigawatts of green electricity in the country by 2030. The target for Karnataka is 10 gigawatt. The government is giving subsidies to buy electrical vehicles as well as to start EV charging stations.

Around 1,000 EV charging stations are being established throughout the state. Minister for Energy, Sunil Kumar says that instructions are given to set up charging stations at district centres, state and national highways and government offices.

Bescom is the nodal organization for all Escoms to set up EV charging stations. It has set up the highest stations. One AC charger unit is set up by the side of Mescom Bhavan in Mangaluru. On the other side, a DC charger is being set up.

An AC charging will take three hours, while the same will happen within 30 minutes in DC. Now the number of electrical vehicles is less. If the EV charging stations increase, the sale of Electric vehicles will also go up, says Mescom officer Harish Kumar.
