Stacking Rebates

All recipients are required to disclose all confirmed and potential sources of funding, inclusive of all federal, provincial, territorial or municipal governments (total government assistance) and other sources that are expected to be received. This information must be reported in the application process.

Total funding from all levels of government (e.g. federal, provincial/territorial or municipal) cannot exceed 75% of the total project costs, unless the proponent is a provincial, territorial or municipal government or their departments or agencies in which case the stacking limit is 100% of total project costs.

If the proposed total Canadian government assistance exceeds the limits set out above, Canada reserves the right to reduce its contribution to the project until the stacking assistance limit is met. If total Canadian government assistance exceeds the limits set out above on the project completion date, Canada reserves the right to recover the excess contribution from the recipient.

The government assistance referred to in these stacking limits does not include loans from governments or Crown agencies. For example, loans to the project from governments or Crown agencies are not included in this calculation; however, if a preferential interest rate were obtained through government loans, the cost savings due to the preferential rate would be included. Clarifications will be provided on a case-by-case basis.

Projects located in British Columbia to install electric vehicle chargers of 20 kW are also eligible for non-repayable provincial funding. If a proposed project is located in B.C, the applicant can contact the Clean BC Go Electric Fleets Program directly.

Applicants may only receive funding from one source, either the Clean BC Go Electric Fleets Program or this EV Fleet Charging Program funded by NRCan. Applicants may not apply to both funding sources for the same project.

The EV Fleet Charging Program is a part of the SCRAP-IT family of environmental programs.
