Consider the benefits of generating clean energy from renewable sources such as the sun, wind, water or bioenergy and selling it for a guaranteed price with a fair return on your investment. Join thousands of Ontarians who are already part of the microFIT Program and contributing to a cleaner environment.
The microFIT Program was launched in 2009 as part of the Ontario government’s efforts to increase renewable energy in the province. The program provides homeowners and other eligible participants with the opportunity to develop a small or “micro” renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts (kW) or less in size) on their property.
Under this program, you will experience many benefits.
- a guaranteed price paid to you over a 20-year term (40 years for water-power projects) for all the electricity you produce and deliver to the province’s electricity grid
- payment for the power you produce, with prices that are designed to cover the costs of a typical project or allow you to earn a reasonable rate of return on your investment over the term of the contract
- contribution to future generations in creating a healthier environment by generating electricity from renewable sources – solar photovoltaic (PV), wind, water and bio energy or being part of the largest climate change initiative in North America
