Basin Charge Up

Our Basin Charge Up program provides one-time support to local governments and First Nations to support their efforts to become more energy efficient.

This program provides one-time support for the installation of solar arrays, the purchase of electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles and public use charging stations. The program will also support energy retrofits for communities with a population of 2,000 and under.

Eligible applicants include local governments and First Nations in the Basin region.
