For the first time, billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries Ltd. has installed electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at its Mumbai campus so that employees can charge their EVs for free.
The company’s HR on Wednesday sent mailers to employees informing them about Jio-bp Pulse EV charging zones at its Navi Mumbai campus, Reliance Corporate Park (RCP).
“Charge your Electric Vehicle at RCP @ No Cost!” Mailer said detailing the process for accessing the facility.
The charging station installed by Jio-bp – the company’s fuel retail joint venture with British energy giant BP – is in line with the firm’s promise to achieve net carbon neutrality.
Reliance may build similar infrastructure at other campuses as well.
According to HR’s email, Jio bp pulse facility will be available to Reliance employees to charge their electric vehicles free of cost.
The Jio BP Pulse Zone at Reliance Corporate Park currently comprises six chargers of various configurations to cater to both electric two-wheelers and four-wheelers.
Reliance employees will have to register through the Jio BP Pulse Charge mobile app and scan the QR code on the charging unit to initiate the EV charging session.
Reliance BP Mobility Limited, operating under the Jio-bp brand name, is working with multiple demand aggregators, OEMs and technology partners with a vision to be the leading EV charging infrastructure player in India.
During 2021, Jio-bp built and launched one of the country’s largest EV charging hubs in Dwarka, Delhi with BlueSmart as its primary customer.
