“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”
Native American Proverb
The Ontario Green Energy Act (GEA) of 2009 is a landmark legislation. It delivers billions in investments and establishes Ontario as Canada’s premier green province.
The GEA decrees the closure of all coal burning power plants in Ontario by 2014. In order to fill this void, the provincial government has established the microFIT program to promote renewable energy. This provides homeowners with incentives to install solar energy systems on their homes.
How It Works
The Ontario Power Authority offers 20-year, binding contracts at guaranteed rates to homeowners operating solar energy systems. The energy your system generates is fed back into the electrical grid and you are paid handsomely for that energy on a monthly basis. The income generated and your payback are a function of the system you choose.
