In June, President Biden agreed to support a newly negotiated bipartisan infrastructure plan between Republican and Democratic senators. The plan includes billions of dollars for electrification efforts including $7.5 billion for a network of EV charging stations across the country. It also includes another $7.5 billion for electric buses and other transportation methods.
The California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) offers incentives for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout the state of California. Geared towards publicly accessible sites, CALeVIP funds projects for both private and government owned public parking areas, workplaces and multi-unit residential buildings. Depending on the county, the project could fund up to $80,000 per DC fast charging station.
TheZero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program is a five-year $280 million program ending in 2024 with the objective of addressing the lack of charging stations in Canada. The federal government’s contribution through this program is limited to 50% of total project costs to a maximum of $5 million per project.
The program supports electric vehicle charging infrastructure deployment in parking areas intended for public use. Parking areas can be privately or publicly owned and operated. Examples include, but are not limited to service stations, retail, restaurants, arenas, libraries, medical offices, park and ride, etc. This program also supports electrification efforts in workplaces and multi-unit residential buildings.
The CleanBC Go Electric Program is intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) in BC for both environmental and economic benefits. The program is designed to increase the number of public DC Fast Charger (DCFC) stations throughout the province to support the growing number of ZEVs on the road.
