The CleanBC Go Electric Commercial Vehicle Pilots (CVP) Program intends to encourage and accelerate the adoption of commercial zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs). The CVP Program is for B.C.-based businesses, non-profits, local governments, Indigenous communities and eligible public entities looking to deploy ZEV technology in commercial applications along with supporting infrastructure.
As a requirement of taking part in the program, participants must collect and share data related to the ZEV deployments that will be used to further the understanding of the operational capabilities of commercial ZEVs. The Program has several pre-qualified telematics service providers that meet the data collection requirements.

Eligible Community

Program support is available to eligible public and private fleets. The primary applicant must be a business, not-for-profit, local government, Indigenous government, or public sector organization located and operating in B.C. (excluding Provincial Ministries and Crowns, but including non-core entities, e.g. health authorities, school districts, etc.).
