Electric Vehicle Toolkit

Overview of the EV Toolkit

As both electric vehicles and charging infrastructure are in the early adoption phase of market transformation, there is a need to both standardise and educate about the deployment process within a provincial context. The EV toolkit has been developed to provide information and resources related to charging infrastructure installation for electric vehicles. The EV toolkit includes links to key resources to help plan, purchase and install charging stations. The toolkit includes resources from the Province of B.C. and will be updated on an ongoing basis.

    • Each EV charging station installed under the Community Charging Infrastructure Fund must be selected from the eligible stations list. The EVSEs included in this List have been determined to meet the minimum requirements for public and fleet Level 2 EVSEs to be funded under the CCI Fund. Nevertheless, inclusion in this List is not an endorsement of any one product by the Province of B.C. or the Fraser Basin Council.
    • If you are a company that manufacturers and/or sells EVSE, and if you have a product that you believe may be eligible under the program and is not currently included on the list, please fill in the Qualification Form and return to the address on the form. Your application will be reviewed and, if eligible, your product will be added to the list.
    • This document illustrates the process of situating Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in the local jurisdiction. The process has been broken down into 5 steps: reviewing the Level 2 Framework, its objectives and priorities; determine potential station locations; refine targets through analysis; identifying the best Charging Station sites within selected location and finally refining multiple site selections using set of defined criteria. The initial objective to locating stations is to enhance visibility of the EV charging stations and introduce public confidence, reduce range anxiety, and show support for the EV.
    • This resource has been compiled to assist an organization that is wanting to install EVSE by providing a listing of variofus services related to the installation of EVSE (ie planning, engineering, civil, electrical contractors). Nevertheless, inclusion in this List is not an endorsement of any one product by the Province of B.C. or the Fraser Basin Council.
    • If you are a company that provides services in relation to the installation of EVSE, and if you are interested in being included in the List of EVSE Service Providers, please fill in the Qualification Form and return to the address on the form. Your application will be reviewed and screening requirements are met, your company will be added to the list.

  • Signage standards and templates for use at MURB stations
    • There is no mandatory signage for MURB charging stations.  Templates will be provided for non-mandatory use by proponents.
    • Information panel templates will also be provided for non-mandatory use by proponents.

 

Coming Soon

  • Online maps or mobile applications that will identify community charging stations in B.C.
