The Department of Environment is set to build five charging stations for electric vehicles in the Kathmandu Valley within the current fiscal year of 2018/19.
Lately, people have shown interest in electric vehicles, aware of rising pollution, boosting the sale of such vehicles, especially in the valley. But charging stations are needed. The Department will seek the support of all sectors in building charging stations.
In the first phase, a charging station will be constructed soon in the premises of Sajha Yatayat station in Pulchowk, said a Department’s official. Sundar Yatayat will provide all essential equipment, chargers and plugs for the station.
All types of vehicles, big or small, can be charged from the station, said Bhushan Tuladhar, member of Sajha Yatayat Board of Directors.
“The process in this regard has started. Five charging stations will be built within the FY after identifying convenient areas,” said Director General for the Department Jhalak Ram Adhikari. The project concept will be created soon after holding discussions with concerned entrepreneurs and stakeholders, he added.
The Department is, however, yet to specify security and money charged for charging electric vehicles.
In this regard, the Nepal Electricity Authority has already called for the Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation to create a legal framework.
President of Independent Power Producers’ Association Shailendra Guragain said a charging station for electric vehicles could be set up within one or two months if legal grounds were created. The drive should be expanded across the country, he said.
