Municipality of Bra, Egea and Enel X, together for sustainable mobility: the first public station for charging electric vehicles in the city was active and presented this morning - Tuesday 18 February 2020. Installed thanks to the partnership between the promoters, it is located in the center (piazza Caduti di Nassiriya, next to the Movicentro), in a convenient position for quick access to the railway station and the urban public transport terminal.

With two dedicated parking areas, the column has two 22 kW charging sockets and allows, for each hour of charging, to accumulate an additional range of up to 150 kilometers. It is possible to use the station through the Egea Green Mobility app. Egea customers, by registering with the app, will be able to choose to receive the final recharge directly on the bill relating to their consumption of electricity and gas, while occasional customers will be able to immediately pay the recharge, using a credit card or Paypal.

Presenting the first public charging station in the city were the mayor Gianni Fogliato, the councilor for sustainable mobility Massimo Borrelli, the CEO of Egea Pierpaolo Carini and the head of the renewable energy sector Massimo Cellino, in addition to the director Ascom Luigi Barbero, representatives of the municipal administration and other city realities.

"We believe in the importance of promoting a new culture of mobility in the city - commented the Mayor Fogliato and Councilor Borrelli -. The intervention presented today, for whose realization we thank Egea and Enel X, is part of a set of measures adopted in recent years by the Municipality for greater sustainability and environmental sensitivity: taking these choices also means seizing new opportunities, in terms of tourism (think of e-bike itineraries in the area) and competitiveness ".

“The presence in the city of this first charging station for electric vehicles is the result of a positive dialogue between public and private. This synergy will soon lead to the activation of a second column in Bra, in the Pollenzo district. All this is part of a much wider project that involves the installation of over 300 columns distributed in more than 100 Municipalities in the Unesco territory, in the province of Cuneo and in the territories of the North-West of Italy. In this initiative, the Egea Group is a partner of Enel X: this relationship was established precisely for our ability to dialogue and interact with the territory and for the breadth of services provided and the territories reached. These are our added value ”commented Pierpaolo Carini, CEO of the Egea Group. (Em)
