CESL sets up first integrated solar charging station to support Ladakh’s ambitions

Convergence Energy Services Limited (CESL) has established a first-of-its-kind solar-powered charging station for electric vehicles (EVs) in the Ladakh region.

The EV carport constitutes 100 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) panels with a 860 kW per hour lithium-ion battery storage system. Solar power during the daylight hours can be stored for about eight hours, thus allowing vehicles to charge anytime in the day. The project has been conceptualised by CESL in partnership with the union territory (UT) government in support of the Prime Minister’s vision to make the region of Ladakh carbon neutral. The carport is currently being used to charge the cars provided by CESL to the UT government, but can be used to charge electric buses as well.
