Submit a proposal for our next EV fast charging site
We’re continually expanding the BC Hydro EV network of fast chargers to support EV drivers across the province.
Do you own or represent land which is a good fit for a new station on our network? Let us know by submitting the site proposal form below.
Before proposing your site: what you should know
Before starting your proposal, make sure you’ve reviewed our network planning information, including:
- The specific communities for which we’re accepting site proposals.
- What factors we consider when selecting new sites, and
- Our upcoming stations and pre-existing plans.
- We’ll require a 10-year site license in most cases.
- There’s no lease compensation to you; the benefit of the station to the site host is that it brings EV drivers to your property or community.
- We give priority to locations with nearby facilities (e.g. restrooms, food and drink) or where the site host contributes to station amenities/costs (e.g. shelter, paving costs).
- If you’re a private landowner, you’ll be required to contribute $12,500 to the cost of the station. The cost of a typical station with two 50 kW chargers starts at $250,000.
We’ll let you know within 90 days if your site is a candidate for our planning queue, or if we have further questions.
