Green Idea Gets Green Light

Barrie City Hall To Consider Providing Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

The city is trying to help you go green by looking a providing charging stations in Barrie. A motion got the nod at city hall Monday night, asking that city staff investigate whether charging stations could be installed in a high traffic area of Barrie. They’ll investigate if the city could provide free or paid charging services, where the stations would be installed, the costs associated with it, and how other municipalities already provide the service. City staff will report back in the coming weeks, long before anyone can plug their cars in. There are currently charging stations at Barrie’s Georgian College campus and Park Place.
