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 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 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.
The City is changing its approach to Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations. In Fall 2020, select parking spaces will be designated for charging electric vehicles. Gas-powered vehicles that park in spaces with EV charging stations will be ticketed. To determine if a parking space is designated for charging electric vehicles, look for this
EV charging station sign.
This change will bring the City into alignment with
provincial legislation, and better meet the needs of the growing EV community in Barrie. Staff monitor the utilization of the EV charging stations and surrounding parking lots. If there are congestion and parking issues, staff will investigate relocating the charging stations to different parking lots.
Parking rates apply as linked below. There are no additional charge to use the chargers.
The 5th level of the Collier Parkade has 22 stations: 16 Tesla-only and six universal.
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.
The downtown library branch has six stations: four Tesla-only and two universal. The stations are located in the parking lot directly north of the library building. Downtown parking rates apply.
Heritage Park has 12 stations: eight Tesla-only and four universal. The stations are located in the parking lot north of the splash pad. Downtown parking rates apply.
The Marina has eight stations: six Tesla-only and two universal. The stations are located in the Marina parking lot, south of the Marina office west of the docks. Downtown parking rates apply.

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).
Yes, only electric vehicles can be parked in electric vehicle parking spaces, and they must be connected to a charging station while there. All other vehicles will be ticketed.
Yes, electric vehicles that are not connected to the charging station will be ticketed.
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.
