Effective February 8th, 2013, property owners of Multi-Unit Residential Buildings and Mixed Use Residential Buildings (MURBs) can apply for incentives through LiveSmart BC for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations. Incentives covering 80% of eligible procurement and installation costs incurred prior to March 31st, 2013 (up to $4,500 max per station) are available. Stations must be installed by August 15th, 2013.

If you are a property owner of a MURB and are interested in installing electric vehicle charging stations you are encouraged to complete and submit an application form to LiveSmart BC. Applications received on or before February 22nd, 2013 will be evaluated in the order they are received, and notification of acceptance into the program provided within one week. Applications may be accepted after February 22nd depending on program subscription rates.

NOTE: Property owners may have already responded to a Request for Expression of Interest (RFEOI) in November regarding working with a program manager to install electric vehicle charging stations. The Province was not able to secure a program manager, but there was a significant and positive response received through the RFEOI process. The program is now being delivered as the LiveSmart BC MURB Incentive Program. Property owners who responded to the RFEOI are encouraged to submit a formal application through Livesmart BC.
