Electric vehicle charging
The future for electric vehicles (EVs) looks bright and we’re excited to be part of it—helping our customers plug in to cleaner energy choices for transportation like EVs by expanding the number of electric vehicle charging stations in BC. Forty per cent of BC’s GHG emissions come from the transportation sector and EVs is one of the ways FortisBC is working for a lower-carbon future. Learn more about EVs from Natural Resources Canada.
