In an interesting move to do its bit to mitigate the worsening air quality in Delhi NCR, Tata Power, one of India’s largest integrated power companies, launched a special program on November 27 to incentivize its employees to switch to EVs. This announcement is aligned with Tata Power’s ‘Sustainable is Attainable’ movement, which encourages adoption of green energy solutions and products to commit to a Lifestyle for Environment (LiFE).

Tata Power and its subsidiaries have nearly 4000 employees working in the Delhi NCR region and has ongoing initiatives  like Climate Crew, which aims to mobilize the workforce to opt for green practices.

Under the newest program, Tata Power has encouraged its employees to purchase EVs, and is also offering free charging facility at select office locations including reimbursement of charging costs beyond company premises. Tata Power has also tied up with EV market leader Tata Motors to make available popular EVs at special prices for employees, with priority delivery post booking, and long term and low EMI financing covering the entire cost of the vehicle.

Commenting on the partnership, Himal Tewari, CHRO, Chief – CSR & Sustainability, Tata Power said, “We are encouraging our employees to embrace e-mobility and champion the cause of sustainable lifestyle by reducing individual carbon footprint. Tata Power is cultivating a culture of environmental stewardship, empowering every employee to become a ‘Climate Action Hero’ through such initiatives. We hope this move will also contribute towards improving the AQI in Delhi NCR, the city with one of the highest vehicular densities in the country.”

Tata Power currently has an expansive EV Charging network consisting of 250+ e-Bus charging points, and 500+ public and semi-public charging points across Delhi NCR. Tata Motors also offers to set up home EV charging for its customers. In the last few years, Tata Power has expanded its business from automobile, EV charging, power distribution and much more.
