How it Works

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.

Environmental Impact

Did You Know? The Earth receives more energy from the sun in 1 hour than the world consumes throughout the year!
In a way, most of life, just like the crops in the field, are solar powered. A key benefit of solar photovoltaic technology is that it does not contribute to climate change by emitting greenhouse gasses such as carbon dioxide and methane.

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.

On sunny day in Germany, 50% of the country’s midday electricity needs are met by solar energy! Learn more on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
