July 26, 2022 – BC residents, businesses and municipalities can receive higher rebates for electric vehicle charging stations through the CleanBC Go Electric EV Charger Rebate and Fleets programs.

For a limited time, funding will cover as much as 75% of eligible purchase and installation costs for EV charging stations (an increase from the previous 50%).

“With electric vehicles representing 13% of all new light-duty vehicles sold in BC last year, our province has the strongest adoption rate of electric vehicles in Canada,” said Bruce Ralston, Minister of Energy, Mines & Low Carbon Innovation. “We’re working with our federal partners to increase rebates for home, workplace and fleet charging, and making it easier and more affordable for people to make the switch to electric vehicles.”

With $2 million in funding from NRCan’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP) to top up the province’s EV Charger Rebate program, workplaces, condominiums and apartments can get a rebate for a Level 2 charging station for as much as 75% of purchase and installation costs (to a maximum of $5000).

As many as 360 EV chargers will be installed through the program.

Through the CleanBC Go Electric Fleets program—and in support of B.C. businesses that own and operate fleet vehicles—NRCan has invested $1.54 million through ZEVIP to top-up rebates. Fleet operators can get combined rebates from NRCan and the province for a Level 2 charging station as much as 75% to a maximum of $5000 of purchase and installation costs, and 75% to a maximum of $75,000 for a DC fast-charging station.

As many as 450 EV chargers will be installed through the program.
