The Province of British Columbia’s CleanBC Go Electric programming is making clean transportation more affordable and accessible for British Columbians. CleanBC Go Electric includes programs focused on electric vehicle public awareness, rebates for zero-emission vehicles and chargers, targeted investments in public charging, hydrogen fueling stations, zero-emission fleets and commercial transport, as well as jobs training and economic development.

The recently announced CleanBC Go Electric Public Charger Program (the Program) is a sub-program of the CleanBC Go Electric initiative and is intended to increase the number of public direct current fast charging (DCFC) stations throughout B.C. to support the growing number of zero-emission vehicles (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 Province and its delivery partner, the Fraser Basin Council Society, are pleased to announce that applications are being accepted for the Public Charger Program! Successful applicants may be eligible for incentives of up to $80,000 per DCFC, with enhanced incentives of up to $130,000 per DCFC for Indigenous communities. Go to pluginbc.ca/publiccharger for more information and to apply. Applications will be accepted on a continuing basis and reviewed regularly.
