FortisBC provides accessibility for electric vehicle users

The utility has placed 12 new direct current fast charge ("DCFC") stations at strategic locations throughout its service territory.

FortisBC is driving change to cleaner energy solutions through several initiatives, most recently by growing its network of DCFC stations for electric vehicles.

The utility has partnered with Natural Resources Canada, the provincial government and local communities to place 12 new DCFC stations at strategic locations throughout its service territory. The locations provide electric vehicle users options for both short and longer highway commutes and enable customers to charge their vehicles quickly and efficiently. A compact electric vehicle can be charged in a half an hour at a rate of $9/half hour.

The 12 newly added DCFC stations were funded by Natural Resources Canada (50%) and B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources (25%) and FortisBC (25%). FortisBC now owns and operates a total of 17 stations in 14 communities across British Columbia. Providing more charging stations and encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles is part of the utility’s Clean Growth Pathway strategy – a plan that positions FortisBC as a key part of the province’s future lower-carbon economy
