For all the eco-friendly folks out here in Delhi, saving the environment (and money) just got a whole lot easier. With the Delhi Electricity Regularity Commission’s (DERC) plan to make charging of e-vehicles in Delhi cheaper and more convenient, more people will be persuaded to buy electric vehicles or make use of them more often. Not only do e-vehicles preserve nature, they also help you cut down costs on petrol and diesel.

In case you’re sceptical about the number of people who use electric vehicles, they’re actually more prevalent than you would think. Apart from just privately owned electric cars and bikes, electric buses in Delhi have become very real and the charging stations do a lot to help the cause.

With the help of cheaper charging, people will be more inclined to charge their vehicles as often as they can. Apart from that, e-rickshaws, which are replacing auto rickshaws in many parts of the city are also on the rise. As per the revised plan, Low-tension e-vehicle users (those who charge at home) will pay ₹4.5 for a kW instead of ₹5.5, while high tension users (at public charging stations) will pay ₹4 instead of ₹5 per kW. The decrease in fares is quite significant when you think about the price of charging your vehicle once.

This development comes after the authorities had decided last year, that of all vehicles registered in the State by 2023, 25% should be electric vehicles. As of now, most of the electric vehicles plying the city are commercial rather than private. In the coming few years, the authorities aim to increase the number of electric vehicles on the road.

For those of you that do tend to already use electric vehicles, this should come as a major boon. We’re glad that something is being done to increase the appeal of electric vehicles in Delhi.
