BCSEA asks Government to Let BC Hydro and FBC Invest in Public EV Fast Charging Stations
August 2, 2019
BCSEA met with the BC ministry of energy in July to encourage the government to cut through the regulatory uncertainty that is hampering BC Hydro and FortisBC (electric) from expanding their networks of public EV fast-charging stations. Currently, BC Hydro is temporarily not charging EV drivers for fast-charging and FBC is charging $9 per half hour with interim approval from the Commission.
BCSEA continues to participate in the Utilities Commission’s proceeding on BC Hydro’s proposed amendments to its Net Metering program. (For background, please read). BCSEA filed detailed information requests to BC Hydro in mid-July.
The BCSEA Kamloops Chapter and TRU Sustainability Office are happy to share some resources from our EV Show on June 23. For now, we have a one-page handout about electric vehicles and the current incentives (see the attachment below). We'll have more to share later so stay tuned.
Hi, I’m Karina, a somewhat shy but nonetheless enthusiastic high school student passionate about the environment. I’ve felt drawn to nature,and preserving it, my whole life. When I was in the first grade I found out that a forest near my house was going to be cut down to allow for the development of townhomes. To stop this frightening act, myself and my closest friends decided we would dress up as woodland creatures, make signs, and go to the build site for a protest. I chose to dress as my favorite woodland creature: a unicorn.
