Public electric vehicle charging stations in BC
We’re working with municipalities and other organizations to build electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across BC so you have more choice and greater range when planning trips.
FortisBC EV charging network
To date we've deployed over 30 Direct Charge Fast Charging stations (DCFC) at 20 sites in 18 communities including: Kelowna, Penticton, Osoyoos, Oliver, Beaverdell, Rock Creek, Greenwood, Christina Lake, Rossland, Nelson, Kaslo, Kootenay Bay, Trail, Castlegar, Salmo, Creston, New Denver and Nakusp.
We've also started installing higher-powered 100 kW stations to support key highway corridors along Hwy 97 and Hwy 3.
- By 2022 FortisBC will own and operate 40 DCFCs across 22 sites, including six higher-powered 100 kW stations.

Partnering with communities
To support customers who are making cleaner energy choices for transportation, we’ve partnered with other like-minded organizations and communities to build a network of fast-charging stations in the Southern Interior of BC. For example:
- In 2017, we teamed up with the Community Energy Association to build five DCFC stations in Greenwood, Christina Lake, Castlegar, Salmo and Creston as part of the Accelerate Kootenays initiative.
- In 2016, we worked with the City of Kelowna to build EV charging stations downtown in the city’s museum parking lot.
- In 2015, FortisBC worked with BC Hydro to build DCFC stations in Princeton, Keremeos, and Penticton.
