Mumbai: ‘78% housing societies want to set up EV charging infra’ – ET Auto
The findings of the nationwide survey released on Thursday showed that EV charging infrastructure was a key priority, with 57% keen to invest in the coming 12 months and 21% in 1-3 years.
The survey was conducted with a set of questionnaires for resident welfare associations (RWAs) to understand the pulse of gated communities towards EV charging infrastructure facilities, solar power and rainwater harvesting. “Of the three, EVs are clearly a priority area, with solar not far behind and on the other hand, nearly one in three communities had already set up rainwater harvesting facilities,” the survey said.
Nearly 800 RWAs participated in the survey, out of which 160 were from Mumbai.
As many as 71% of respondents indicated that they intend to install solar energy infrastructure within three years.
