Sharjah gets electric vehicle charging stations
Al Qasba Tourist District provides two free charging stations for electric cars
The Al Qasba tourist district in Sharjah is offering two electric vehicle charging stations, as part of the emirate's green parking initiative.
The stations offer free charging for electric vehicles.
The green parking initiative was launched by the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) with the aim of promoting a sustainable ecosystem in Sharjah.
The inauguration of the two new charging stations is aimed at spreading awareness about the importance of electric vehicles in preserving the environment, decreasing harmful emissions and reducing carbon footprint.
Al Qasba's management is keen to highlight the role played by green parking - of which electric vehicle charging stations are a main component - in promoting sound environmental practices.
"The launch of green parking in Al Qasba through the establishment of two charging stations for electric cars is a significant boost to Sharjah government's efforts of adopting more sustainable methods and advancing the emirate's status as an eco-friendly city. As electric vehicles become more and more established moving forwards, we anticipate that the number of charging stations will increase correspondingly in the emirate, with additional stations being installed at Al Qasba as required," said Sultan Mohammed Shattaf, manager of Al Qasba.
"This initiative is of particular importance to Al Qasba as it enables us to raise the awareness of our visitors about the significance of sustainability and the measures needed to conserve the environment. Customers who drive electric vehicles can now avail a free-of-charge recharging service while they are enjoying the world-class facilities at Al Qasba, including its cafes, restaurants, theatre, kids' areas and numerous other attractions," he added.
