Electric charge station grants available for Township businesses

Wanted: progressive businesses that attract crowds and are making plans for the future.

Incentive grants are being given to Lower Mainland companies willing to install electric vehicle charge stations and the Township of Langley wants to be sure its businesses get in on the offer.

Metro Vancouver is providing $4,000 to up to 75 eligible businesses and non-profit organizations throughout through the region as part of the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Incentive Program.

Deadline for applications is Nov. 30.

“This is an excellent opportunity for forward-thinking companies that want to show leadership and attract customers,” said the Township’s community energy manager Ryan Schmidt.

“By thinking now about what will be a more common means of transportation in the future, our businesses can receive a significant rebate.”

The incentive will be considered for businesses throughout Metro Vancouver, and Schmidt wants to ensure Township companies who want to host a charging station are signed up for consideration.

To begin the incentive application process, contact EVStation@metrovancouver.org or call 604.688.9769, ext 135.

EV charging station information sessions will also be held across the region in November to discuss the incentive, address benefits and technical issues, and provide technical support.

The sessions are free and registration is not required. Visit metrovancouver.org/EVstation.
