VICTORIA - Minister of Energy, Mines Bill Bennett and Minister of Environment Mary Polak welcome EcoRun to the B.C. Parliament Buildings. The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s EcoRun is an annual tour and demonstration of eco-friendly vehicles.
Earlier this week, Minister Bennett announced the Province will offer incentives of up to $5,000 for the purchase or lease of a new battery electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, and up to $6,000 for a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The new incentives take effect on April 1, 2015 and are part of Phase 2 of the Clean Energy Vehicle (CEV) Program which will distribute $10.6 million over the next three years to make CEVs more affordable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
