How to open electric vehicle charging station in India

You can charge 2 wheelers, 3 wheelers, 4 wheelers, buses, and other heavy vehicles. But the basic requirement is you must have space for the parking of vehicles which come for charging. 

Mostly, 2 wheelers, 3 wheelers, and 4 wheelers are more comfortable to charge as compared to big vehicles because they don’t require more space. 

Although, buses or other heavy-duty electric vehicles need a large space for charging and also require following requirements:

  • At least two chargers of minimum 100 KW, each of different specifications(CSS, CHAdeMO) is necessary to install.  If you have enough space for large vehicles you can also install a charging station for heavy electric vehicles. 
  • On FCS(Fast Charging Stations) for heavy electric vehicles, it must have battery swapping facilities for meeting the requirements of the charging station.

How much revenue did you generate?

If someone wants to invest his/her money in business then he/she has the right to know what is the amount of revenue that should be generated by that business.

So, for charging station business, if anyone establishes a charging station of 5 machines with 3 fast charging and 2 slow charging. Then the number of electricity expenses on a daily basis is around 3000KW. It is a roughly estimated figure which I am describing below.

And on an estimate around 2.5 rs. is saves on every single unit of electricity.

So, the earning of one day is around:

2.5*3000=7500 Rs.

Monthly: 7500*30=2,25,000 Rs.

Yearly: 2,25,000*12= 27,00,000 Rs.


So, this is all about Estimated Public Charging Station Revenue, Costing, Requirements, and its opening terms in India. 

Now, let’s see Why do we need Electric Vehicles?

The graph of air pollution in India is rising. Following 2 are the most basic reason behind the increase of air pollution in India:

  • Industrial Pollution
  • Vehicular Pollution

Industrial pollution contributes about 51% of air pollution and vehicular emission has a share of about 27%. These two are the most basic reasons behind the rapid rise in air pollution in India. The ranking of India is in one of the top countries which have high air pollution. As per a study based on 2016 data, at least 140 million people in India breathe air that is 10 times or more over the WHO safe limit.

Air pollution in India has become a prominent issue. Indian Government is also worried about the rising level of air pollution. Due to the rise in air pollution, the breathing problem also rising. India is in the list of most air-polluted countries in the world. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges looming over society. With ice caps melting at a rapid pace, countries around the world are experiencing a drastic change in their climates, and wildlife is getting affected too. 

So for an alternate to Internal Combustion Vehicles Electric Vehicles are coming as the best alternate.
