KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 –PRG Holdings Bhd unit, Premier Electrify Sdn Bhd (PESB) has signed a memorandum of collaboration (MOC) with Sunsuria City Sdn Bhd on the installation of an electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Sunsuria City Township, Sepang.
In a filing to Bursa Malaysia today, PRG said, under the agreement, PESB would, at its own cost and expense, set up the EV charging station, while Sunsuria would provide a designated parking bay to provide charging facilities for EV users.
“The proposed collaboration with Sunsuria is in line with the group’s corporate social responsibilities project in promoting the use of EV in Malaysia.
“The group will gradually increase the number of EV charging infrastructure to gradually reduce car emissions in Malaysia,” it said, adding that the charging station in Sunsuria City would be free for all EVs.
Meanwhile, in a separate statement, PRG’s Property and Construction Managing Director, Datuk Alex Wee Cheng Kwan, said the company would be installing more EV charging stations in prospective locations within the Klang Valley, depending on the demand.
“Going forward, we do not discount the possibility of working with highway operators, petrol stations, mall owners, car dealers, national airports and commercial buildings for such initiative,” he said.
