EV Charger Rebate Program for Workplaces

About the program

Rebates are available to help homes and workplaces across B.C. get ready for electric vehicles (EVs). The program is funded by the Government of B.C.’s Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, with occasional financial support from the Government of Canada, and is administered by BC Hydro and FortisBC.

*Program updates

October 31, 2023 – The Province of B.C. has approved $6.59M in fiscal year 23/24 funding to fully re-open the CleanBC Go Electric EV Charger Rebate Program for Homes and Workplaces. All program offers are accepting applications again. Funding is limited and will be allocated until it’s exhausted.

Please note that federal funding from the Government of Canada’s Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP) that became available for condos and workplaces on June 15, 2023 has now been fully allocated. This process was completed on a first-come first-served basis.

Pre-approval from BC Hydro is required before purchasing or installing chargers.

Rebate offer

Workplace owners who purchase and install eligible EV chargers could receive a rebate of up to 50% of those costs to a maximum of up to $2,000 per charger, and up to $14,000 per workplace, while funding lasts. A business can apply for a maximum of four of their workplace sites, resulting in a maximum project rebate of up to $56,000.

EV Advisor

Workplaces looking to install EV chargers can get up to five hours of free advice and planning assistance from an expert in EV charging and equipment.

How they can help

In an initial consultation, advisors will collect information about the location and the employees’ charging needs, and explain different charging options. This is a high-level review, not a substitute for an electrician or electrical engineer. Advisors can also work with building managers to help them understand EV charging quotes from contractors.

If you require more than five hours from an advisor, they can provide you with additional services at an hourly rate. 


Pre-approval required

Pre-approval from BC Hydro is required before purchasing or installing chargers.

After we review your application, and within 30 days, we’ll send you an email indicating whether or not you’ve been pre-approved. That email will provide a summary of next steps, including your deadline to complete your project and submit your paid invoices.

You must complete the project you were pre-approved for and submit your final rebate application within six months of your pre-approval date from BC Hydro.

If these rebates are combined with any other incentive, they’ll be capped so that the total incentives don’t exceed the total cost of the equipment and installation.

Required documentation

Make sure you have the necessary documents ready before you start your pre-approval application.
