Financial Incentives
- Feed-in tariffs and other government financial incentives


Oct 9th 2013Ontario residents can benefit from a new government program which allows home and business owners to generate income from solar systems on their roofs or mounted in their yards. The program pays for 20 years, while the life of a solar system can be much longer – 30 years. Effectively, solar systems can act like a GIC, with fairly predictable income over its life, and a rate of return from 7 to 14%.
If you are a homeowner, farmer or small business owner, you have the opportunity to develop a very small or “micro” renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts or less in size) on your property. Under the microFIT Program, you will be paid a guaranteed price for all the electricity your project produces for at least 20 years.
