    Almost a year in, I did a quick summary of challenges of charging in Toronto:



    Would love your input for Part II. It'll include Eaton Centre Supercharging, how one should never charge at Lawrence because damn it's busy, and changes to the laws that force condo boards to say yes to EV charging. I'm going through this process at the moment, so I'll have more input here. My condo board said "yeah, maybe, later" for the longest time, but the next meeting should be more interesting.

    How about supercharging at Markham, Vaughn or Etobicoke? you only need to supercharging once or twice a week, if you have a model S or X, it is free.

    I don't think so.... I thought they were planning it, but I haven't heard much about it of late. I could be wrong! I quick google search didn't find anything fruitful. But yeah, that's a huge problem for all the houses that don't have parking spots.

    To give you a tip on a well hidden secret charger... there is a parking garage at 180 Wellington (North East corner of Simcoe and Wellington - enter off Simcoe and it is a one-way street. Right across from Roy Thomson Hall). if you are needing to park and charge. Daily rate is $16 (from 5am-7pm is considered daily) and it has two chargepoint chargers. the first two hours of charge is free and then after that every hour is $2. Hope that can help you in a pinch. Also on the weekends it is a $10 flat rate and that is the same for weekday evenings.
