About Plug in BC

Plug In BC is an initiative led by the Province of BC to lay the groundwork for plug-in electric vehicles and related electric charging infrastructure.

This is a broad collaboration that includes BC Hydro, the City of Vancouver, Metro Vancouver, Fraser Basin Council (Green Fleets BC), BC Institute of Technology and University of Victoria (Institute for Integrated Energy Systems).

About the Community Charging Infrastructure Fund

A cornerstone of Plug in BC is the Community Charging Infrastructure (CCI) Fund. This fund offers incentives to both public and private sector to help build a network of 570 electric vehicle charging stations across BC for use by the public and by fleets.

The Fund is overseen by the BC Ministry of Environment and BC Ministry of Energy and Mines, and administered by the Fraser Basin Council.
