MRT Jakarta Opens 3 Solar Charging Stations in Dukuh Atas TOD
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - PT Mass Rapid Transit or MRT Jakarta provides three solar charging stations for electric bicycles and electric motorcycles in Dukuh Atas Transit Oriented Development (TOD), Central Jakarta.
“The first step, of course, is to disseminate it to the community with key partners, namely the Environment Agency and PT PLN (state-owned electricity firm),” said MRT’s director for business development, Farchad Mahfud, at Dukuh Atas TOD, Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
Other than for electric bikes and motorbikes, he said the stations could be used for charging mobile phones, and that supports a wireless system.
The facility is also provided to encourage Jakarta residents to use electric vehicles in order to establish an environmentally friendly city. “Reducing carbon emissions is a form of Jakarta’s innovation to strengthen public ecosystems and eco-friendly transit-oriented areas,” he explained.
Farchad also hoped that the Dukuh Atas TOD could be an example of an emission-free area in the capital. “One of the efforts to boost MRT Jakarta’s economic growth is to provide good services for the community by rising mobility, reducing congestion, and developing an environmentally friendly urban transportation system,” he said.
