Light-duty natural gas vehicle incentives

Customers purchasing a new, factory-built compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle or converting an existing vehicle to CNG may be eligible for a financial incentive.

Incentive calculation

The amount of the incentive would not exceed $10 per gigajoule (or $0.347 per gasoline litre) based on estimated consumption over a one-year period, up to a maximum total depending on the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). For example, the maximum grant for a light-duty vehicle less than 10,000 GVWR is $2,500.

Eligibility requirements

Applicants must be:

  • purchasing a factory-built natural gas vehicle (NGV) or converting a vehicle (five years old or newer) to natural gas that meets federal emissions and air quality requirements. Aftermarket conversion equipment must be installed by qualified shops.
  • purchasing CNG fuel within FortisBC's Lower Mainland service area under Rate 6.

Eligible vehicles include:

  • passenger cars (e.g. Honda Civic GX)
  • pickup trucks (e.g. Ford F150)
  • cargo vans and minivans (e.g. Chevrolet Express Van)
  • forklifts

If you’ve already received an incentive for the vehicle under this program or any other FortisBC program, it won’t be eligible for further incentives.

This incentive program offers limited funding for medium and heavy-duty vehicles; however, we recommend commercial fleet operators first apply under our Medium and Heavy-Duty Fleet Incentive program.
