Thanks to the Province of Nova Scotia, Efficiency Nova Scotia is able to provide rebates for electric vehicle (EV) chargers to owners of multi-unit residential buildings (MURBS).
There are two EV programs to explore:
- The EV Ready Approach
- The Standalone EV Charger
The EV Ready Approach
The first pathway is the EV Ready Approach. So what does EV Ready actually mean? Let’s find out!
A building that is ‘EV Ready’ has an electrical connection installed for each resident’s parking space, allowing the residents a fair and simple process to install an EV charging station at any time, if they purchase an electric vehicle.
The EV Ready plan is a strategy to guide your initial charging infrastructure investments in a smart, cost-effective manner, and enables the building to achieve EV Ready in time. It helps ensure your initial charging infrastructure is future-proofed to meet long-term charging needs.
The Standalone EV Charger
- The second pathway is the Standalone EV Charger, a rebate for installing eligible charging stations.
- This pathway provides lower rebates compared the EV Ready Approach, but it’s a simpler process for smaller projects or when installing your initial charging stations.
50% of eligible costs, up to $2,500 per
station (max $10,000 per building).
