ATUM Charge launches self-sustaining solar-powered EV charging station

Thursday, 16 Sep 2021
Share this on :
The first ATUM Charge, a 100 percent green, self-sustaining, solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) charging station was launched at SP Road, Secunderabad in Hyderabad, Telangana, by Dr G Vivekanand, Chairman, Visaka Industries.  
 
ATUM Charge helps customers adopt sustainable and eco-friendly ways of commute as it is an ecosystem that is developed keeping in mind the EV mobility.
 
ATUM Charge is a 100 percent subsidiary of Visaka Industries. With the launch of ATUM Charge, Visaka Industries is building an environment-friendly and sustainable eco-system which reinforces the company’s commitment towards sustainability.  
 
This is an addition of new business verticals of Visaka Industries. 
 
ATUM Charge is a unique EV charging station which is very different from other EV charging stations as it uses ATUM, the world’s first electricity generating integrated solar roof. 
 
ATUM Solar Roof, for which Visaka holds a patent, both in India and South Africa, will enable the entire electric vehicle charging proposition to move to 100 percent solar whereas, currently, most EV charging stations use electricity produced by thermal power generation. 
 
ATUM Charge, the universal EV charging stations for all EVs, will also be the service station for Atumobile’s ATUM 1.0, a café racer styled e-bike, as well as its official test ride centre. 
 
To support its customers and encourage the adoption of EVs, Atumobile customers will be allowed to charge their e-bikes for free, whereas other brand EV owners will only be charged a nominal fee at ATUM charge stations. 
 
ATUM Charge Stations will also have free Wi-Fi and workstations which can be used by people, as a satellite office, as they charge their electric vehicles.
 
ATUM Charge EV Charging Stations are powered by ATUM solar roof, which generates 40 percent more electricity in the same given space as compared to traditional solar panels, is the ideal solution for EV Charging Stations and can be installed anywhere across the urban and rural landscape. 
 
ATUM does not need any roof underlay like many conventional solar tiles available in the market, as it is a standalone roof. 
 
As a roof it has mechanical properties which are far superior to tiles/shingles/conventional panels. ATUM is Class-A fire rated and designed to take wind speeds of over 250 km per hour making it hurricane-proof.  
 
It also uses GreenPro Certified material which makes it a highly sustainable, reliable and safe solar roof.  
 
Currently,Visaka has installed four kW capacity panels which can conveniently charge up to 10-12 vehicles (two-/ three-/ four-wheeler) per day given that any EV today takes between six to eight hours for a full charge. The facility has three charging sockets. 
 
The company will be installing an additional capacity of six kW, making it possible to charge 25-30 vehicles per day. 
 
The company is launching similar facilities at Chennai, Goa and Bengaluru in September 2021 and inroads have already been made for rigorous expansion across the nation. 
 
To facilitate quick expansion across the nation, Visaka is looking at tying up with interested individuals who own a piece of land in prime areas of any towns or cities and are willing to let it out on a lease basis for a period of 10 years and beyond.
