For a variety of reasons, electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more popular. One of the primary advantages of EVs is reduced pollution from gas emissions. Other challenges that must be addressed include rising fuel prices and dwindling energy resources such as fossil fuels. These factors have a bigger influence on a clean and green Pakistan. Electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining popularity as a means of reducing CO2 emissions from road travel as well as worldwide fossil fuel usage. The grid is regularly used to provide the electricity required to charge an electric vehicle's battery. There are significant power issues in the system when EVs are charged by the electrical grid. Consideration of EV charging by particular solar photovoltaic (PV) systems could be helpful to further encourage renewable energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. This paper will look at a financial and environmental feasibility analysis for the construction of an electric bike charging station powered by solar photovoltaic. Various system design plans are explored in this study, along with their impact on GHS gas emissions and economically significant metrics. The proposed approach's results are compared to those of a charging station that receives a single charge from the grid. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, such as CO2, CO, SO2, and NOX, have been greatly reduced when compared to other current approaches. The study should benefit environmentally friendly and commercially profitable renewable energy-based EV charging options.
