Update to BC Building Act Allows for EV Charging

September 21st, 2016

According to a June change for the Provincial Building Act¬†Electric Vehicle Charging Stations/Plug-ins are considered matters ‘out of scope’ under the Building Act. ‘Out of scope’ is defined as “matters… local government can regulate… if they have authority to do so in other statutes.” This gives local governments greater flexibility in making decisions regarding the use of EV charging in new developments.
