Solar PV and FIT
Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) and microFIT
The Ontario Power Authority Feed-In-Tariff and related regulations under the Green Energy and Economy Act have created an improved opportunity for secure investment in community-based green power development. A FIT or microFIT system will generate revenue for 20 years at a guaranteed rate.
EcoPerth will facilitate the purchase and installation of PV systems from CSI (Canadian Solar) with installation by a local elecrical contractor. The PV systems are engineered, integrated systems. The solar panels are warranted for 25 years (expected life in the 30 to 40 year range). The inverter is warranted for 10 years.
Steps to getting a contract
a. Register on-line to create and submit an application
b. The OPA will then let you know if you can proceed to request connection from Hydro One.
c. You have six months to install and connect the system. The rate is fixed on receipt of the conditional offer.
