Ontario MicroFIT Program

The Province of Ontario, through the Green Energy Act, is promoting the installation of Renewable Energy production systems, including Photovoltaic (PV) panels on residential and commercial properties. The MicroFIT program is one of the first steps to creating green jobs in Ontario and closing the coal-fired generating plants.The initial Feed-In Tariff (FIT) rate will compensate homeowners 80.2 cents for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) produced by a PV system up to 10 kilowatts in size. The contract with the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) will guarantee this rate for 20 years. This represents a very low risk investment opportunity for long term investors who install quality systems designed to withstand 20 years of our harsh climate.

Factors to Consider before Investing in Solar
The actual power produced will be dependent on a number of factors:

Roof Orientation: ideally your sloped roof is facing within 30 degrees of equatorial south (< 5% energy loss) and the roof pitch is between 30 and 50 degrees. The steeper the pitch, the less snow cover; the gentler the pitch, the greater the summer energy generated.

Shading: watch out for trees and buildings that will affect the core sun hours of 9am – 3pm. This time period is the peak power production window.

System Efficiency: quality and engineering of the entire system will affect the overall energy delivered. Different panels will deliver different amounts of energy even if they are rated at the same number of watts. Quality panels make more power.

Experience of Installer: Solar Electric Systems will not produce significant power if they are designed poorly or installed incorrectly. Installation experience and years in business are important factors to consider when choosing a supplier.
The ideal Ottawa area roof is expected to generate revenue of $1,020 per kWh yearly. This represents a 10.0 – 12.5% annual return for 20 years. Plus, after the contract expires, you are left with a valuable system that is still generating lots of power.
