INTRODUCTION TO GREEN ENERGY ACT
Until now, going green has been expensive and unprofitable.
That has changed.
Did you know that on May 14th, 2009, Ontario’s
Legislature passed the Green Energy Act (GEA) assisting
homeowners in embracing lower energy use and energy
generation. One of the highlights of this legislation
is the Ontario Power Authority’s microFIT (Feed
In Tariff) program. The aim of this program is to
encourage the development of micro scale renewable
energy projects by paying homeowners a fixed price
for the energy they produce at an amount that will
cover the cost of the project and earn a reasonable
return on investment over the term of the contract.
Ontario is the first province to actively support
the development of solar electricity generation by
contracting with projects using photovoltaic (PV)
panels. Under the microFIT Program, you will be paid
a guaranteed price for all the electricity your project
produces for at least 20 years. You can be part of
Ontario’s growing green energy movement, make
money and contribute to a cleaner environment.
