Electric Vehicle Charging Stations around Ontario, and Toronto are Growing in Numbers,
and not everyone is aware of many of the locations! This one is at Highway 7 & 400, at
IKEA, at a Reasonably Active Location listed on PlugShare!
Location - Access, Primary Directions:
From Highway 7, Eastbound after exiting the Highway 400, travel towards Jane Street, Turn Right
(South) at Interchange Way, travel to the End where it meets an intersection in front of IKEA, Turn Right (West) by
the IKEA Flags.
If you are coming from the Hwy 407 ETR, at the Jane Exit - continue Straight through past the Flags.
Continue to the 1st IKEA Entrance on your left, Take a Left Turn Lane there, Turning South, and
continue into parking lot.
As you enter, at your right will be at the Two 48A Sun Country Highway chargers wrapped with IKEA's
wrapping. Map marker location is exact, 4 EV parking spaces in front of the two chargers.
We will be inviting Exhibitors with Personally Owned Electric Vehicles to come out and Join
us for a Charge, and inviting Past EV Fest Guests and the Public to Join us and See Just how Easy and Quick it is
for Electric Vehicles to be Connected and Disconnected from a Public Charging Station, and how convenient it is to
use a Charging Station!
This Event is the 2nd (Second) of what we hope to be many, many, such small events, where we
will be creating a smaller event, showcasing the sites where there are more than one Electric Vehicle Charging
Station available for Public Access.
There will be a small Token Fee for these events, usually at the pocket change level, and the
events will be short in duration. You may come early - but if you come late - it might be already over!
This Event is $5 for Exhibitors and $2 for Guests. Donations are also an Option.
Guest Numbers may be limited as these events will be generally in parking lot spaces where
there is vehicle traffic.Be Advised - Watch for Vehicular
Not All such Events will be Scheduled with a long notice period, or with permission to have
priority access to such Chargers, as they are Public, but as for much of the time most such sites are
underutilised, and we will try to invite less EV Owners than the number of Charging Stations on site, so there is
room for the general public as well.
We feel that for the most part, this would be a great introduction of the realities of EV
Charging, showcasing the benefits, and opportunites, as well as any learning opportunites for the uninformed public
to develop a respect for Electric Vehicle Charging Spaces, their uses, and diplomacy.
Lets get together, share a few stories, chat with the public, and make plans for more events
