Single-family homes, including duplexes and townhouses, can also apply for a rebate of up to 50 per cent of purchase and installation costs to a maximum of $350 through the EV Charger Rebate program.
"With the highest uptake rates of EV adoption in North America, we want to make sure that more people supporting our transition to a low-carbon economy have easy access to charging infrastructure," said Bruce Ralston, the minister of energy, mines and low carbon innovation, in a statement.
There are more than 60,000 light duty electric vehicles currently on the road in B.C., the province says.
