A $2,000 rebate is available for installation of a Level 2 charging station designed for multiple users in apartments or workplaces. The 2 000 dollars is the average that EV car owners spend from purchase of the chargers to the installation of the unit.
The government says in a statement that BC Hydro customers can apply for an additional $350 in a matching rebate to buy and install the equipment in single-family homes.
More than $4 million has been set aside for the new CleanBC rebate program.
Michelle Mungall, minister of energy, mines and petroleum resources, says the rebates will make it easier to switch to electric vehicles.
To qualify for the rebates, the stations must be installed and final documents submitted by March 31.
