PETALING JAYA: Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has tied up with Gamuda Land to build two electron stations for electric vehicle charging at the latter’s property development projects in Selangor.

Both companies today inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop Malaysia’s first electron stations at Gamuda Cove in Southern Klang Valley and Gamuda Gardens in Northern Klang Valley for communities in the projects and visitors to the water theme park at Gamuda Cove.

The stations, slated to serve motorists by 2025, will accelerate the development of the ecosystem and infrastructure for electric vehicles in the country, thus supporting the sustainability vision of both companies.

The future electron stations will be powered by rooftop solar panels that will help offset electricity from the grid and support a greener environment.

These electric charging stations will be compatible with all vehicle-makes ranging from hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully EVs and include both AC and DC fast chargers.

Just like conventional petrol stations, the electron stations will include a host of services such as food and beverage outlets, convenience stores and more to serve motorists who are waiting for their vehicles to be charged.

The MoU is set to pave the way for TNB and Gamuda Land to collaborate towards increasing the usage of electric vehicles in Malaysia and achieve Malaysia’s net zero emissions aspiration by 2050.
