What is the DCCP?
Canada’s largest EV charging incentive program with funding support from GM Canada, its participating dealers, and NRCan. This initiative will accelerate the transition to Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) by providing access to new Dual Port Level 2 EV charging stations in communities across Canada.
What are the rebate details?
NRCan funding will cover 50% of all eligible project expenses up to a maximum of $10,000 per dual port charger. GM Canada funding adds $6,000 per dual port L2 charging station to a maximum of five (5) dual port charging stations per project site. Local Community GMC Dealerships will fund an additional $4,000 per dual port L2 charging station to the maximum five dual ports per project site.
What expenses are eligible?
Eligible expenses for reimbursement can include charger equipment, installation costs, construction expenses, electrical work, permits, and other costs directly associated with the installation of the charging stations. FLO’s maintenance and management service fees are not eligible. Additionally, all taxes are not eligible.
Are there any requirements for the charging stations?
The chargers must be FLO CoRe+ MAX 19.2kW 80A level 2 stations, with Ultium and dealer branding in a dual side by side pedestal configuration. They must be connected or have the ability to communicate with other stations or a server/cloud using cellular/wireless signal or connected vehicle communications.
How does the reimbursement process work?
Site hosts are responsible for covering all project costs upfront, however eligible expenses will be reimbursed through funding by NRCan, GMC, and participating dealerships. Upon completion of projects, site hosts must submit all project completion documents, such as paid invoices, proof of ownership or access to install sites, “before and after” photos, etc. for assessment. Pollution Probe will assess the claims and after receiving the funds from the respective parties, reimbursements will be paid out in one lump sum payment to each site host.
How is the funding amount determined for each applicant?
The NRCan portion of funding will cover up to 50% of the project costs to a maximum of $10,000 per dual port charger. The funding from GM Canada and its community dealer for the project site, together, will cover $10,000 per dual port charger to a maximum of five dual port chargers per site. For example, if all eligible project costs total $103,000 for 5 dual port chargers, the eligible funding amount to be reimbursed will be $100,000.
* Note: Dual port charger refers to a pedestal install with two charging ports
