About BC Hydro EV
EV fast charging rate interim approval
The BC Utilities Commission has provided interim approval of charging rates for EV drivers using our fast charging stations.
Starting May 1, 2021, the following interim rates will apply:
- $0.12 per minute for 25kW DC fast chargers (currently in Hope, Squamish and Horseshoe Bay)
- $0.21 per minute for 50kW DC fast chargers (all remaining locations)
About our network
The BC Hydro EV network currently has over 70 fast charging stations across B.C., and there are more on the way.
BC Hydro operates mainly 50kW DC fast chargers, but you’ll also find some 25kW “mini” fast chargers and Level 2 chargers at some stations. Most stations currently have a single DC fast charger but as usage grows, we’re upgrading stations with a second fast charger.
You’ll currently find several models of chargers deployed across the network.

You can use the BC Hydro EV app can activate stations on other networks across North America.
