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

The companies had inked a memorandum of understanding 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 EVs in the country. They will be powered by rooftop solar panels that will help offset electricity from the grid and support a greener environment.

They will be compatible with all vehicles ranging from hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully EVs including fast chargers.

Just like conventional petrol stations, they will include a host of services such as food and beverage outlets, convenience stores and more to serve motorists.

TNB chief strategy and ventures officer Datuk Megat Jalaluddin Megat Hassan said the MoU is set to pave the way for TNB and Gamuda Land to collaborate towards increasing the usage of EVs.
