EV Charging Incentives

What is the EV Ready Rebate Program

A new incentive program has been launched for developing an Electric Vehicle (EV) Ready Plan and Electrical Infrastructure in Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs). Don’t miss out, funding is limited on total maximum rebates of up to $97,000.


The EV Ready rebate program provides an incentive for MURBs to develop an EV Ready Plan and implement EV Ready parking. Rebates include:

  • 75% rebate of the total costs of an approved EV Ready Plan, up to a maximum of $3,000
  • Up to $600 per EV Ready parking space, to a maximum of $80,000 per MURB
  • $1,400 per charging station, up to $14,000 per MURB
  • $97,000 in total maximum rebates available


The program is available to MURBs located in BC, constructed prior to March 31, 2020.

  • Building Owners
  • Building Managers
  • BC residents
  • Strata Councils
  • Building representatives who reside in or have oversight of an eligible MURB
  • Owners or managers of MURBs that provide Level 2 EV charging parking spaces, including shared parking areas or private garages


To be approved, an EV Ready Plan must include a minimum of one (1) EV Ready parking space per residential unit. The parking space must feature a complete electrical circuit terminating in a junction box capable of providing Level 2 EV charging.

The plan must include:

  • An electrical capacity assessment
  • Minimum charging performance requirements
  • Charging options for the parking spaces
  • Cost Estimation
  • EV energy management systems


To be eligible for the electrical infrastructure rebate of up to $600 per parking stall, applicants must first apply for pre-approval and a number of requirements must be met. TDR Electric is able to help you through the process:

  • An approved EV Ready Plan by BC Hydro
  • At least one (1) designated EV Ready parking space per residential unit (i.e. parking space equipped with a complete electrical circuit terminating in a junction box capable of providing Level 2 EV charging)*
  • A junction box labelled for EV charging only
  • Electrical permits as required by Technical Safety BC or your local municipality.
  • Activated infrastructure installed with any EV Energy Management System

The team at TDR has been amazing to work with - I can’t say enough good things about them. When you hire any trade to help you there’s a lot of trust put in them to do what they are asked to do but my experience with them is they go above and beyond and they think outside the box to make the job the best it could possibly be, make it workable for the business and they really take pride in their work. Liam and his team have been professional, helpful, and accommodating, and brought ideas for my business I hadn’t even thought about to improve it and I’m so grateful for that!

We have used TDR's services for home improvements (light installation) and they were prompt and professional. More recently, TDR has been working with our strata to identify options for Electric Vehicle charging in our complex. They provided our council with an EV Ready Plan which was approved and reimbursed by BC Hydro, and Taylor has helped us immensely in understanding not only the technical aspects of an EV charging system installation but also the requirements under the ever-changing rebate system.

It was a pleasure to work with TDR from the friendliness of the office personnel to the consultant who came out to do up a work order and cost, to the electrician who came and did the work.
