Paying for your charge
The BC Hydro EV app will indicate the price to charge at our chargers, as well as chargers within the roaming partner networks. All BC Hydro EV chargers have signage that indicates the pricing.
If installed at an apartment/condo or workplace, this networked charger may be eligible for a rebate.
Get up to $2,000 in rebates, up to 50% of costs, per charger to purchase and install Level 2 networked EV chargers at your building’s residential parking spaces, to a maximum of $14,000 per complex.
Rebate amounts vary depending on factors such as whether or not the building is participating in other EV Ready rebates.
Up to $2,000 per charger to purchase and install eligible Level 2 networked EV chargers for employee use, to a maximum of $14,000 per workplace.
