As a forward-looking community, the City of Barrie is striving to get ahead of the curve in regards to electric vehicles.
Staff plan to report back to City Council regarding the public response to the deployment of the charging stations. Please provide your thoughts by taking a brief survey. The results from the survey will be included in a Staff Report that will go to Council in Fall 2019.
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.

downtown parking rates apply to the Collier Parkade, Library Heritage Park and Marina lots.
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).
Anyone can park in these spots. If you don’t have an electric vehicle it's preferred that you park your vehicle in a spot that does not have a charger, but there are no restrictions on the use of these parking spaces.
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.
