As the push for greater EV adoption sweeps across Canada, more and more rebates have become available. Thanks to these rebates and more, there’s never been a better time to install EV chargers for your fleet!
The BC Hydro CleanBC Go Electric EV charger rebate program includes incentives for workplace EV charging stations. The program offers workplaces a rebate of 50% of the cost to purchase and install eligible Level 2 networked EV chargers for employee use, (to a maximum of $2,000 per charger and $14,000 total). Pre-approval from BC Hydro is required prior to purchasing and/or installing chargers.
If your business has multiple locations, applications can be submitted for up to four, netting a total maximum project rebate of $56,000! The program also includes five hours of consultation and planning from an EV charging expert. Pre-approval is needed before installation and requires a quote from a licensed electrical contractor.
EV charging technology has made major improvements over the past several years. Today there are more ways to charge than ever before, with flexible options available to suit any business type, size, or budget.
EV chargers can provide for a wide range of power needs. Do you have a small vehicle fleet that sees occasional use? Level 2 chargers can serve your business effectively. Does your business rely heavily on company vehicles in constant use? Level 3 chargers can charge vehicles quickly and get you back on the road.
Today’s EV chargers can be installed in whatever location is most convenient for your workplace. Whether in a garage or parking lot, indoors or outdoors, there are many options to suit the layout of your property.
Successful businesses rarely stay the same size for long. Luckily, a professional EV charging electrician will be able to help you plan ahead, providing an EV charging setup that meets the current needs of your business—and leaves room for the future.
Businesses everywhere are constantly looking for ways to improve both their sustainability and profitability. In some cases, doing both can be difficult—but EVs powered by workplace EV charging stations are a green upgrade that can also help improve your bottom line.
Electric vehicles carry an annual operating cost of less than half (and sometimes less than a third) the cost of gas-powered alternatives. Whether your business operates a large fleet or uses a small handful of company vehicles, this is a major money-saving opportunity!
Relying on public and third-party chargers to power your electric vehicles can be unreliable, time-consuming, and expensive. By adding workplace EV charging stations to your business, you unlock the opportunity to get the most from your switch to electric vehicles!
Workplace EV charging stations enable you to charge vehicles overnight, meaning your fleet will be fully charged and ready to go by the time employees show up to work in the morning. What’s more, with a completely private charging area for your business, employees will never have to wait to charge. And finally, owning each charging station cuts out the middleman (and extra costs) with public EV charging stations.
If you’re considering upgrading your business to an all-electric fleet, or if you’ve already done so, chances are you have a lot of questions about adding EV charging stations to your workplace.
