The CCI Fund Results are in 

In April 2012, the Province of BC announced a $2.7 million Community Charging Infrastructure (CCI) Fund to support a province-wide network of electric vehicle charging stations in 2012-2013. See the news release and backgrounder on the Province of BC website.

The goal was to support charging stations serving members of the public or fleets, with participation of municipalities, regional governments, First Nations communities, BC businesses and other organizations. This charging infrastructure is an important step in offering drivers options away from home. The CCI Fund provided funding incentives to communities and businesses through a Charging Stations Incentive and Planning Incentive.

As a result of the Community Charging Infrastructure Fund, 456 Level 2 charging stations have been installed across the province.

Below is a map showing all operational charging stations supported by the CCI Fund. You can also visit PlugShare to find a station near you.
