FIT Program

The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program was enabled by the Green Energy and Green Economy Act of 2009.  The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) is responsible for implementing the FIT program.  The FIT program is North America's first comprehensive guaranteed pricing structure for renewable electricity production.  Prices are designed to cover project costs and allow for a reasonable return on investment over the contract term. 

The FIT program is divided into two streams - FIT and microFIT.  The microFIT program applies to projects of 10 kW capacity or less, whereas the FIT program is geared to projects over 10 kW.  The microFIT program offers a simplified application and contract issuance process as compared to the FIT program.  The rate per kW that you will receive through the two streams also differs.

A number of types of renewable energy projects qualify for the FIT program.  Among the most appealing of the available options for many residents and corporate citizens of Ontario are solar photovoltaic (PV) solutions.  ClearSky Energy specializes in solar PV installations and can help you maximize the financial and environmental benefits of these programs.

Contact us to arrange a site assessment and we'll be happy to answer any and all questions you may have about the FIT program.
