HPCL Bandra Kurla Complex outlet in Mumbai and Nitimarg T&E outlet in Delhi both have new ChargeGrid Flare EV chargers todayby Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited and Magenta. The ChargeGrid Flare is a built-in charger for streetlights. In India, this kind of EV charging station is a first. The charger is equipped with a power-saving powerful LED lamp, a street light pole, and Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment designed for Indian climatic conditions, allowing for online and remote charging monitoring.
The ChargeGrid App also has an automated payment gateway, which eliminates the need for a station marshal to track, manage, and operate the chargers at the site.
It is a one-of-a-kind device that offers integrated EV charging facilities from inside a durable, traditional-looking streetlight, designed exclusively to provide an energy-efficient streetlight combined with an EV charging point.

The product was scheduled to be released in April 2020, with several pilot projects to begin immediately afterward. However, due to the effects of Covid-19, we agreed to postpone the installations, and we are now pleased to report that 2021 is off to a great start with this first installation at the HPCL centres. This year, we plan to deploy 1000 ChargeGrid Flare across India, and we’re in talks with OEMs and fuel stations about it. We’re looking forward to working hard in 2021 to make up for the previous year, said Maxson Lewis, Magenta’s MD.
