In a bid to improve the infrastructure for EV charging in gated communities, ApnaComplex, India’s leading community management solution provider, has collaborated with Greenie Energy, specialists in IoT-based EV charging hardware, to install charging stations in gated communities. The partnership will enable Greenie Energy to expand across ApnaComplex’s pan-India network of 6,000 societies with more than 6.8 lakh households.
Greenie Energy will supply and install 3.68 kW Level 1 EV charger in society parking areas. Apart from educating on the operating procedure and protocols, the company will carry out maintenance, repairs, upgrade, and replacements for the charging point as required for the entire duration of the contract.
Speaking about the partnership, Shajai Jacob, Managing Director & Country Head – ApnaComplex & ANACITY, said, “ApnaComplex has partnered with Greenie Energy as part of our commitment towards improving the residential experience and sustainability in our automated gated communities. Given the push towards clean energies, particularly through EVs, it becomes critical that we ensure the appropriate infrastructure. With this partnership, we hope to cater to the residents who are looking for a charging station in their own garage. The ability to monetise the Greenie Energy charging station can help offset the initial investment cost.”
Istayak Ansari, Director & Co-Founder, Greenie Energy Technologies, further added, “Gated communities have a high number of vehicle owners. Equipping these societies with charging stations can go a long way in reducing emissions in our urban centres. As a leading community management platform in India, ApnaComplex has an extensive pan-India network among gated communities. With this partnership, we hope to reach the average user who is looking for a reliable charging solution.”
The partnership comes at a time when the state and central governments have increased their focus on promoting EVs as the preferred mode of transport in the public and private sector.
