Magenta Power has emerged as a prominent name in terms of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure with a few 'firsts in India' to its name. It was the first manufacturer to launch a solar-powered EV charging station in India last year. And now, Magenta has teamed up with Mahindra Susten to take its progress in solar-based energy solutions forward. Magenta Power recently announced its collaboration with Mahindra Susten, Mahindra Group - which deals in sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy solutions.
Magenta Power says the objective behind the partnership is a conceptualise solutions most suitable for the Indian market requirements. Within the framework of this collaboration, Magenta Power and Mahindra Susten (CnI division) will jointly work towards developing technological solutions, rooftop solar power installations for clean energy adoption, and eventually Magenta will incorporate these for EV charging solutions as well.
“We are absolutely delighted about the prospect of working with Mahindra Susten, which is a renowned solar power solutions provider. We believe that this will add tremendous value to our customers, resulting in unmatched product quality at very competitive costs. Overall, our association with the leading technology providers, reinforces our positioning in the Indian Solar Space” says Mr. Maxson Lewis, Managing Director- Magenta Power
“Mahindra Susten has done projects in the Kilowatt, Megawatt scale with an inbuilt capacity of more than 1 Gigawatts in India & KSA.
