BC MURBs & EV Charging: The time to act is now!

Three financial incentives are currently available to British Columbia multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs – including strata condos, rental apartments, workplaces and hospitality properties). 

The NRCan ZEV Infrastructure Program currently enables up to 75% cost recovery when combined with the CleanBC Incentive.  (2023 application intake dates pending)

In addition BC MURBs can now benefit from selling carbon credits – a new income stream for your building.

Electric Advantage is an independent advisory services and systems company.

To be successful in applying for the 2023 ZEVIP grant (application intake period expected to open in January 2023) have your EV charging infrastructure project finalized and financing approved well in advance. This process generally takes 2-3 months. Until January 31, 2023 we’re taking on British Columbia MURB building owners to help them configure their projects, convince stakeholders to proceed, and apply for funding.

We offer services to ensure a well thought out project configuration to maximize government grants, and the future versatility of your project. We review and assess electrical contractor proposals. We build the business case, communications and information sessions for your stakeholders to move your project forward.

Results: Of our 2022 NRCan ZEVIP grant application strata condominium clients, we helped two recent clients reach a 96% special resolution approval for project funding through respective SGM and AGMs.
