What is the Feed-In-Tariff Program?
Ontario's Feed-in-Tariff Program is North America's first comprehensive guaranteed pricing structure for renewable electricity production. It offers stable prices under long-term contracts for energy generated from renewable sources, including biomass, biogas, landfill gas, wind, solar photovoltaic (PV) and waterpower.
The Feed-in-Tariff Program was enabled by the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, 2009 which was passed into law on May 14, 2009 to encourage renewable energy generation. A feed-in-tariff provides standardized contracts, rules and prices. Feed-in-tariffs refer to the specific prices paid to renewable energy suppliers for the electricity they produce.
The FIT Program is for electricity generation projects greater than 10 kilowatts. The microFIT Program is for smaller projects up to 10 kilowatts in size and offers an easy, streamlined process for project Applicants.
The Ontario Power Authority is responsible for implementing the program. For details on the most up-to-date project eligibility requirements for FIT and microFIT projects please visit the Ontario Power Authority Feed-in-Tariff Website.
There is a monthly charge per connection as determined by the Ontario Energy Board.
