Feed-in Tariff Program

Ontario Power Authority's Feed-in Tariff or FIT Program

The Government of Ontario's Green Energy and Economy Act created the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program to encourage renewable energy generation within the province. FIT is a straightforward way to contract for renewable energy generation. It provides standardized program rules, prices and contracts. FIT refers to the specific prices paid to renewable energy suppliers for the electricity produced by the generating facility. The pricing structure provides a reasonable return on investment and is differentiated by project size and technology type.

The Ontario Power Authority's feed-in tariff or FIT program, offers long-term contracts to renewable energy producers, is divided into two streams - FIT and microFIT. The FIT Program is for renewable energy projects that can generate more than 10 kilowatts (kW) of electricity. Very small projects, at a home or small business, that can generate 10 kW or less come under the microFIT Program.
