British Columbia supports shift to clean transportation options


British Columbia (BC) is making clean transportation more affordable and accessible for its citizens with incentives and one of Canada’s largest networks of charging and fuelling stations, announced Michelle Mungall, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources on Clean Energy Vehicle Day.

“We know that many British Columbians would like to make the switch to a clean-energy vehicle, but are put off because they think it will be too expensive, or that the charging infrastructure isn’t in place yet,” said Mungall. “Today’s event is about letting people know what we are doing to make the shift to clean transportation more affordable, and more accessible for British Columbians.”

BC is already a leader in clean-energy vehicles, with one of the largest public charging-infrastructure networks in Canada, and one of the highest per capita adoption rates of electric vehicles in the country.

To help more drivers make the shift to a clean-energy vehicle, the provincial government is making investments in 2018, along with other partners, to more than double the size of BC’s electric vehicle direct-current fast-charger (DCFC) network to 64 sites. When the network is expanded, it will be possible to drive from Golden to Tofino in an electric vehicle without running out of power.
