Toronto — February 25, 2020
ChargeLab, Canada’s leading EV charging software provider, today announced it is offering eligible multi-family and office buildings EV charger installations for $0 in upfront costs in conjunction with the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP). ZEVIP is a funding program from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), currently targeting multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs), workplaces, and light-duty vehicle fleets. Businesses, condo boards, and property managers interested in this limited-time offer should contact ChargeLab before April 14, 2020.
As a turnkey provider of electric vehicle charging solutions with experience helping businesses and property managers benefit from federal funding opportunities, ChargeLab has helped dozens of properties apply for millions of dollars in grants
Under the new ZEVIP program, NRCan and ChargeLab’s investment are subject to repayment over time based on pay-per-use fees generated by the EV chargers installed. ZEVIP pays 50% of total project costs up to a maximum contribution of $5 million. For a limited time, ChargeLab is matching NRCan’s contribution for eligible projects, bringing the upfront deployment cost for buildings to $0.
While ZEVIP requires applicants to install a minimum of 20 EV chargers, there is no minimum to join ChargeLab’s program. The company plans to submit a joint application bundling many smaller and medium-sized deployments.
“Transportation is Canada’s second-largest source of greenhouse gases,” said Navdeep Bains, Canada’s Minister of Innovation, Science, and Industry, “That’s why our government is working to make it simpler for Canadians and businesses to switch to zero-emission vehicles.”
