microFIT Program

The microFIT program is a branch of the Ontario Power Authority's (OPA) Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program for renewable energy in Ontario.  It is intended to encourage the development of micro-scale renewable energy projects across the province.

If you are a homeowner, farmer or small business owner, or if you manage an institution such as a school or place of worship, you have the opportunity to develop a small-scale renewable electricity generation project of 10 kilowatts (kW) or less in size on your property.  You'll be paid for all of the electricity you produce through the microFIT program.  Prices are set at a fixed level intended to enable owners to recover the costs of the projects, as well as earn a reasonable return on their investment over the term of the contract.  Click here to view the microFIT pricing information.

The program is available to many types of renewable energy projects.  Among these, perhaps the most appealing are rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installations for homes and small businesses.  Ground-mounted solar PV installations are also eligible, but it should be noted that the rate offered for each kW produced is somewhat less than rooftop installations.

Please contact us to arrange for a site assessment, and we'll be more than happy to answer any and all questions you may have about the microFIT program.  We can also help you through the application process.  Its just a small part of the value-added service we offer at ClearSky Energy!
