2024 BC EV Rebate List

A Complete List of All BC EV Rebate Options for 2024

Canada is investing heavily into electric vehicle adoption, and this is especially true here in British Columbia. We’ve seen numerous rebates made available to homeowners, business owners, strata stakeholders, and everyday drivers—so many that it may seem hard to keep track of them all. As leading EV charging experts, our team at TCA Electric has compiled a complete list of EV rebate options offered to BC residents.

Our BC EV rebate list covers EV charging rebates as well as electric car rebates to help maximize your savings. Here’s what’s being offered in 2024.

Electric Vehicle Rebates

BC is strongly incentivizing the purchase of new electric vehicles in an effort to move drivers away from gas-powered cars. This has resulted in multiple direct rebates and incentives, many of which can be combined for even greater savings.

The complete list of BC EV rebate options for vehicles includes:

CleanBC Go Electric Rebates

This program provides incentives of up to $4,000 for the purchase of new battery electric passenger vehicles (or up to $2,000 for plug-in hybrids). Incentive amounts are based on the specific vehicle and the income of the applicant. 

There is also a rebate program for businesses looking to transition fleets to electric, which provides $1,500–$3,000 per vehicle.

Federal iZEV Program 

Canada offers a federal rebate for electric vehicles, which may be combined with provincial rebates like the CleanBC Go Electric Program above. Incentives range up to $5,000 (or up to $2,500 for shorter-range hybrids), and the program runs until 2025—or until funding runs out.

You can view the list of eligible vehicles here.

BC SCRAP-IT Program 

A lesser-utilized rebate program is the SCRAP-IT program, which provides incentives to owners of older and less efficient gas-powered vehicles. This program may provide up to $300 cash (or various other rebate options) for you to trade in and “scrap” a qualifying vehicle.

Single-Family EV Charging Rebates

There are multiple incentives available to single-family homeowners to purchase and install Level 2 EV chargers in their homes. These include:

BC Hydro Single-Family Rebate

BC Hydro is once again providing rebates for single-family homeowners. Previously these rebates were discontinued, but they are once again available for as long as funding lasts. 

Homeowners can apply for up to $350 in rebates on eligible home EV charging devices, including from brands like Tesla, FLO, ChargePoint, and more. In addition, individuals looking to install a smart charger can receive up to $250 in additional top-up funding.

Further, this program now includes owners of freestanding homes, row homes, and duplexes alike.

Power Management Device Rebate

In some cases, a power management device may be required before an EV charger may be installed. BC Hydro is now providing up to $200 for the purchase and installation of such devices when paired with an EV charger installation.

FortisBC Single-Family Rebate

For customers of FortisBC, a similar program is available offering up to $350 or 50% of the cost to purchase and install an EV charger.

EV Charging Rebates for Strata & Workplaces

With renewed funding, the BC Hydro rebates for strata and workplaces are once more available. Apply now before funding runs out!

Multifamily: EV Ready & Infrastructure Rebates

Since not every building is prepared to support EV charging capabilities, BC Hydro provides incentives to help cover the costs of needed electrical upgrades. 

The EV Ready Plan rebate covers up to 75% of the costs of creating a professional document (from a licensed contractor) that outlines a plan for making a multifamily residential complex “EV Ready.” 

With the plan prepared, multifamily strata can then access the EV Ready infrastructure rebate. This program provides funds for electrical upgrades identified in the EV Ready Plan, covering up to 50% of costs, to a maximum of $600 per parking spot and $120,000 for the entire project.

Multifamily: EV Charger Rebates

BC Hydro also includes a rebate supporting multifamily EV charger installation. This rebate covers up to 50% of the cost of eligible EV chargers, to a maximum of $1,400 per charger and $14,000 per building for those who participate in the EV Ready program.

Alternatively, those who did not participate in the EV Ready program can receive up to $2,000 per charger (also to a maximum of $14,000 per building).

Workplace: Multi-Location EV Charger Rebates

Rounding out the BC EV rebate list, workplaces looking to install EV charging networks can receive up to $2,000 per Level 2 charger, covering up to 50% of costs to a maximum of $14,000. Businesses with multiple locations can submit separate applications for up to four, granting a total maximum of up to $56,000 in rebates.
