Ontario is moving forward with the next phase of its clean strategy and is now accepting applications to the microFIT program under newly enhanced rules.
The microFIT review and approval process has been simplified, making it easier for people to participate in the program. The new rules also encourage greater participation from municipalities, universities, schools and colleges, hospitals, long-term care homes, social and affordable housing and First Nations communities.
These improvements, made through Ontario's Feed-In-Tariff Program Review, will help ensure the continued success of the microFIT program, encourage the development of renewable energy technology, attract investment and create new clean energy jobs in Ontario.
Growing the clean energy sector is an important part of the McGuinty government's plan to modernize Ontario's electricity infrastructure, ensure clean air for families and keep the lights on in homes and businesses across the province.
"Building a clean, modern and reliable electricity system remains a priority for Ontario. The enhancements to the microFIT program support the ongoing development of energy initiatives in our region and will move the province toward building a clean energy future." stated MPP Laurel Broten, Etobicoke-Lakeshore.
