PageLines- SSS_icon2.pngThe Ontario government launched microFIT Program in 2009 as part of their efforts to increase renewable energies in the province. This program provides homeowners and other eligible participants with an opportunity to develop a small or “micro” renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts (kW) or less in size) on their property.

Under this program, the Ontario government will pay a guaranteed price over a 20-year term (40 years for waterpower projects) for all the electricity you produce and deliver to the province’s electricity grid.

You will get paid for the power you produce, with prices that:

Are designed to cover the costs of a typical project allow you to earn a reasonable rate of return on your investment over the term of the contract.

Contribute to a healthier environment by

generating electricity from renewable sources – solar photovoltaic (PV), wind, water and bioenergy being part of the largest climate change initiative in North America. The microFIT Program is a streamlined program for small renewable energy projects under the umbrella of the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) Program. The FIT Program is designed for projects generating over 10 kW of electricity.
