The process is simple
The Ontario Government’s Feed-in Tariff Program enables renewable energy projects – such as the ones we develop – to connect to the electricity grid and sell power at a fixed price per kilowatt-hour.
The electricity is sold through a what’s called a Power Purchase Agreement with the Independent Electricity System Operator, over a 20 year period.
After securing a location to construct a ground-mount solar project, we apply to the Ontario Provincial Government and then to the regulatory agency who awards the contract. Renewable Power Partners then secures the financing and constructs the solar project.
Recent technological leaps make it possible to transition towards renewable energy as a viable alternative to fossil fuel generation.
Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff program creates the economic conditions that allow businesses, manufacturers, and investors to safely develop solar energy projects.
Each 500 KW solar plant is equivalent to:
- Protecting 327 acres of mature forest.
- Offsetting the emissions from 85 passenger vehicles.
- CO2 emissions from 6,880,000 pounds of coal.
- Greenhouse gas emissions avoided by recycling 3,000 tons of waste instead of sending it to the landfill.
