Rebates for EV Charging Stations

A new rebate program will support B.C. residents looking to buy and install electric vehicle (EV)

charging stations at home and at work. The $4 million program will be administered through CleanBC. Michelle Mungall, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy announced the new program at UBCM’s Convention today.

To reduce the upfront costs that come with EVs, homeowners can get a $350 provincial rebate to install a Level 2 charging station in a single-family home. A $2,000 rebate is available for the installation of a Level 2 charging station designed for multiple users in condominiums, apartments and workplaces. Up to five hours of free support services from an EV charging station advisor is also available for condominiums, apartments and workplaces seeking to address their EV charging needs.

BC Hydro customers can also apply for an additional, limited time matching rebate of up to $350 to buy and install EV charging equipment in single-family homes.

To qualify for the CleanBC rebates, home and workplace charging stations must be installed, and final documentation submitted, by March 31, 2020.
