CleanBC Go Electric
The CleanBC Go Electric Program is intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) in British Columbia (B.C.) for both their environmental and economic benefits.
The CleanBC Go Electric Public Charger Program (Program) is a sub-program of the CleanBC Go Electric Program and is intended to increase the number of public Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFCs) throughout B.C. to support the growing number of ZEVs on the road.
The Program aims to target current gaps in the public DCFC network in B.C. such as Indigenous communities, rural and northern areas, and city centers experiencing long queues for DCFCs due to high ZEV uptake.
The next application deadline is Friday, May 13th, at 11:59 pm PST.
This Program Guide serves as direction for the CleanBC Go Electric Public Charger Program, and identifies the requirements for administration, implementation, and oversight of the Program. The document may be periodically updated as needed to clarify Program requirements and improve Program effectiveness.
The Program will provide varying rebates of up to $80,000 per charge port depending on charger output, to a maximum of 50% of project costs, with enhanced rebates of up to $130,000 per port, to a maximum of 90% of costs for Indigenous communities (see section 3.1). The Program will also provide rebates for co-located Level 2 stations with DCFCs, up to $5,000 per station, to a maximum of 50% of costs (90% for Indigenous communities). The target number of DCFC ports to be installed from the Program is 80 and for Level 2 stations is 60. The total Program funding available for charger rebates is $5,076,000.
