Drive past the pump

The province of B.C. wants to help you drive past the pump and plug in.

If you’ve been thinking about buying an electric car, new charge-up incentives may give you the boost you need.

The province has announced new rebates in its Plug in BC program to help offset the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charging equipment in single-family homes, duplexes and multi-unit residential buildings and – for the first time – in workplaces.

Three new rebates, funded with $1.85 million from the Province of British Columbia as part of its Clean Energy Vehicle Program and administered by Plug in BC, are available now through March 31, 2020.

  • A rebate for Single-Family Homes and Duplexes covers 75% of costs, up to $750, for the purchase and installation of a Level 2 (208v/240v) charging station for residential use installed February 1, 2018 or later. A B.C. resident can request the rebate after the purchase and installation of the station is complete.
  • A rebate for Multi-Unit Residential Buildings covers 75% of costs, up to $4,000, for the purchase and installation of a Level 2 station (208v/240v). An applicant must apply in advance of a purchase and installation of a station and may apply for more than one station.
  • A rebate for Workplaces covers 50% of costs, up to $4,000, per Level 2 station (or $2,000 per Level 1 (120 v) station). An applicant must apply in advance of a purchase and installation of a station and may apply for more than one station.

Rebates are available by application on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to consideration of a fair geographic distribution of the incentives in B.C.

Plug in BC offers support and information to applicants, including free consultations on the steps to set up a charging station in a multi-unit residential building or workplace.
