Salt Spring island, BC: The Salt Spring Chamber and Tourism Salt Spring, working with local government and community groups, are "leading the charge" in green tourism. As well as having the most electric vehicles per capita, the island is installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at B&Bs, so visitors can plug in while they sleep. The Capital Regional District (CRD) will provide $250 grants to the first five B&B owners to install a Level II charging station. As Pacific Northwest residents of California, Oregon, Washington and BC drive the majority of EVs, Salt Spring Island Tourism invites them to come and get a "charge" on Salt Spring!
