CleanBC Go Electric rebates for homes and workplaces
BC Hydro works with the Government of B.C. and FortisBC to offer provincial rebates for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) chargers and infrastructure to get homes and workplaces across B.C. ready for EVs. There are currently no rebate offers available, but check back in April for program updates.
This program is part of the province's CleanBC plan to make clean transportation more affordable and accessible for British Columbians. Visit Go Electric to learn more about the plan and read the full strategy.

Single family homes
If the program reopens, it would offer single-family homes a rebate of up to 50% of the purchase and installation costs of an eligible Level 2 EV charger, to a maximum of $350 to $700 (exact rebate amount subject to funding approval). This includes duplexes or townhouses with private garages or dedicated parking.
