I work at the Fraser Basin Council (FBC). FBC is a charitable non-profit society that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser Basin and across BC. Within the Climate Change and Air Quality unit, I provide EV Advisor Services as a part of the Plug In BC team. As an EV Advisor, I advise MURBs and workplaces on charging incentives, charging installation processes, and EV charging benefits. I also provide virtual advising sessions to assist with various barriers to electrifying parking stalls. The CleanBC Go Electric program is intended to encourage and accelerate the adoption of EVs to reduce GHG emissions and achieve the GHG reduction goals of the province. A key barrier for adoption is accessing charging. CleanBC Go Electric is part of the province's CleanBC plan to slash carbon pollution and make clean transportation more accessible and affordable for BC residents. By providing incentives and assistance with navigating the application process, the province has seen an uptick in EV charging station installation and EV readiness. This initiative is essential to achieve the Vancouver Climate Emergency Action Plan 2030 goal to have 50% of the km driven on Vancouver's roads be by zero-emissions vehicles.
