The Plug in BC Collaboration

Plug In BC is an initiative co-chaired by the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines and BC Hydro to lay the groundwork for plug-in electric vehicles and related electric charging infrastructure in British Columbia. It is a broad collaboration between the Province of BC, BC Hydro, the Fraser Basin Council, several academic institutions, regional governments, and over 100 communities and businesses.
 
Plug In BC focuses efforts along 5 main themes: vehicle deployment, charging infrastructure, policy development, research, and outreach.
 
Here are highlights of our work:
  • 1166 (as of August 2014) electric vehicles on the road in B.C.
  • 550 public level 2 charging stations across BC
  • 306 residential charging stations
  • 142 charging stations in multi-unit buildings
  • 8 DC fast charging stations in key locations, with 22 more planned
  • Student training, research and development in electric vehicles and charging infrastructure
  • The development of guides and tools for planning and installing infrastructure in the public space and in strata-owned buildings.
