On Friday, September 26, the Province of BC launched its $5 million Go Electric EV Charger Rebate Program. This is part of the CleanBC plan launched last December with a goal to support actions to reduce BC’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Most co-op building’s are multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) and are eligible for a rebate of 50% of the cost of purchase and installation of the charging station. There’s a maximum of $2,000 per station, and you can apply for multiple stations (Rebates will be capped at $14,000).
Please note that, depending on your co-op’s construction, if units have their own dedicated electrical meters, there may be some restrictions on these amounts.
To be eligible for the rebate, your co-op will need to get program pre-approval prior to purchase and installation. To get that approval you will need:
Please note: the program states that rebates are also available for single-family homes and workplaces.
