This is a Provincial Program
The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) has introduced the Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Program to the province of Ontario.
The fundamental objective of the FIT Program, in conjunction with the Green Energy Act, is to encourage the development of renewable energy generating projects throughout the province.
Larger FIT projects
A generator participating in the FIT Program will generate electricity by renewable means and be paid for each kilowatt-hour produced.
Renewable energy sources which qualify for the FIT Program include:
As a first step to participating in the OPA Feed-In Tariff Program please visit the province’s Fit Program Website.
Smaller microFIT projects
Projects which are located on residential properties and are smaller than 10 kilowatts in capacity may apply for connection under the microFIT Program. The microFIT Program allows for an expedited application and connection process.
