As a forward-looking community, the City of Barrie is striving to get ahead of the curve in regards to electric vehicles.
One of the challenges to adoption of electric vehicles is the lack of public space charge stations. The City has made an arrangement with Tesla Canada to install 54 electric vehicle charge stations at various locations around downtown Barrie at no cost to Barrie residents. The City owns and operates the chargers.
Tesla has worked with the City to install both Tesla-branded charge stations that are only compatible with Tesla products and universal stations that are compatible with all makes of plug-in electric vehicles.
Regular parking rates apply and there is no additional charge to use the chargers. The
downtown parking rates apply to the lots listed below.
Regular parking rates apply for most stalls; there is no additional charge to use the charging stations. The
downtown parking rates apply to the Library, Heritage Park, and Marina lots.
Parking fees for EV stalls in the Collier Street Parkade are currently being waived for a trial period. Staff in the Transit and Parking Strategy Department will report back to General Committee concerning the parking use of these stalls during the trial period.
No, these are Level II charging stations (it will take three to four hours to charge most vehicles depending on level of charge when started).
Only electric vehicles can be parked in electric vehicle parking spaces, and they must be connected to an electric vehicle charging station while there.
The electrical cost will be paid by the City. It is anticipated that costs will be very low initially. As usage becomes more significant, the City intends to charge for the use of the charging stations.
