Please note that EV advisory services are available to Workplaces and Multi-unit residential buildings with shared parking garages in British Columbia. Detached houses are not eligible for the EV Advisor service.

Applications for the CleanBC Go Electric EV Charger Rebate are now open for BC Hydro and FortisBC customers in their respective service areas.  For updates about this program please subscribe to the Plug In BC e-Newsletter.

  • EV Charger Rebates, FortisBC
  • EV Charger Rebates, BC Hydro.  As of October 31, 2023, BC Hydro will begin accepting applications for all rebate offers. Funding is limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis until it’s exhausted. Additionally, federal funding from the Government of Canada’s Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP) that became available for condos and workplaces on June 15, 2023 is fully allocated and is no longer be available. As a result, all rebate offers for Homes and Workplaces are being fully funded by the Province of B.C. and all rebate amounts have returned to their normal funding levels.

Onsite presentations & education

The EV Advisors do not administer rebates, but can provide up to five hours of free advice to employers, staff, residents, or strata councils on

  • charging incentives,
  • charging installation processes,
  • user guidelines within stratas
  • workplaces,
  • and on the benefits of acquiring chargers.

EV advisors can help walk you through the process of getting electric vehicle charging in your building by providing lunch & learn sessions, presentations at AGMs/SGMs, or webinars for decision makers.

Site consultations

Get an initial consultation on your site-specific charging needs and options for incentives. These consultations will provide a high-level review of your charging needs only, and are not a substitute for an electrical assessment or installation quote from a licensed electrical professional.  For an electrical assessment or quote for installation, we recommend you contact a licensed electrician.

COVID-19 update

In-person EV Advisor services are currently suspended for the safety of the advisors and our customers. However, Advisors can accommodate remote meetings for consultations via video or telephone conferencing. If you require more than five hours from an advisor, they can provide you with additional services at an hourly rate.
