Government of Ontario releases two-year FIT program review

March 22, 2012

The Government of Ontario today released their two-year review of the FIT Program. Recommendations include, among others, (i) the reduction of prices - for solar projects by more than 20% and for wind projects by approximately 15% (see new price table below); (ii) the creation of a point system to prioritize FIT Applications which have demonstrated community or Aboriginal participation and municipal support; and, (iii) reserving 10% of the remaining capacity for projects for those projects which have significant local or Aboriginal participation.

Revised draft Program Rules and draft Contracts implementing the recommendations are expected to be released shortly by the OPA. We will continue to update the blog with further information and analysis regarding changes to the FIT Program.
