The Province and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) are making it more affordable for people to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in their homes, businesses and communities.
B.C. residents, businesses and municipalities can receive higher rebates for EV 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, which is an increase from the previous 50% coverage.
Home and Workplace Charger rebates
Workplaces, condominiums and apartments can now get a rebate for a Level 2 charging station for as much as 75% of purchase and installation costs to a maximum of $5,000.
Condominium and apartment buildings may also apply for rebates to develop EV Ready plans and install EV Ready infrastructure before purchasing charging stations.

Go Electric Fleets rebates
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 $5,000 of purchase and installation costs, and 75% to a maximum of $75,000 for a direct-current, fast-charging station.
Indigenous communities and businesses will be reimbursed the purchase and installation costs of eligible, new, Level 2 charging equipment at the rate of 100% of total costs, up to a maximum of $6,000 per station, and up to 90% to a maximum of $90,000 for a direct-current, fast-charging station.
Fleets may also access a ZEV fleet advisor and apply for rebates for ZEV fleet assessment, facility assessment, and electrical infrastructure before installing charging stations.
