RIYADH: The Madinah municipality has signed an agreement with Al-Sharif Holding Group to establish 12 electric charging stations in different parts of the city, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
It is part of the Kingdom’s efforts to achieve its zero-carbon goals.
The opening of these new electric charging stations is expected to increase the popularity of electric vehicles and will also support environmental sustainability programs.
The agreement was signed between Fahd bin Muhammad Al-Balishi, mayor of the region and Ahmed Sindi, CEO of Sharif X Company for Electric Vehicle Charging Solutions.
According to reports, these electric charging stations are expected to provide fast and medium charging devices, both AC and DC through power supply sockets with a power ranging from 22-200 kilowatts.
Recently, Kalyana Sivagnanam, group CEO of Petromin, during an exclusive interview with Arab News said that its electric charging station arm Electromin is planning to open new charging stations, in addition to the existing 100 to end Saudis’ reluctance to EVs.
