Plug in BC
In BC 93% of electricity generated is clean energy. This makes electric vehicles a good option for BC drivers who want to cut greenhouse gas and other harmful emissions by driving cleaner and greener.
Plug In BC is a program of the Fraser Basin Council that offers information and support on plug-in vehicles and charging in BC. The program owes its success of the past decade to the collaboration of government, industry, community groups and institutions.
