B.U.C., British Columbia’s largest province, is banning all solar lantern technology over fears that electric vehicles will take over the market.
The move comes as a result of a new study that found more than two-thirds of households in B.E. have solar and wind-powered devices.
The province’s chief scientist, Peter De Waal, said his research showed there were around 70,000 electric vehicles in B-2 territories and that there were currently more than 15,000 registered EVs in B2 territories.
De Waa said there was no need to ban them, since they were already in widespread use.
“It’s really about making sure the vehicles are clean and safe,” he said.
“You can’t take away a clean vehicle without taking away its value.”
The B.A.E., which includes Vancouver, B.F. and B.S., is a province in British Columbia with a population of 1.2 million people.
De Waal said his analysis also found that most vehicles sold in B.-2 territories use solar technology, while about 80 per cent use wind-based technology.
The province has an EV charging station in every single province, he said, and the province is also considering charging stations for electric cars.
DeWaal said the government is also working on plans to make B.D. homes and businesses more energy efficient.
B.B.E.’s current energy plan says the province will cut its electricity use by about 20 per cent by 2020.
