Canada’s first renewables feed-in tariff launched

The government of Ontario has launched Canada’s first feed-in tariff (Fit) for renewable power under its Green Energy Act. The move is part of a series of incentives designed to create 500,000 jobs in the renewable energy sector over the next five years.


Homeowners, business owners and private developers can apply to the Fit programme if they use one or more forms of renewable energy, including wind, waterpower, biomass and biogas, solar photovoltaic (PV) power and landfill gas.

The Fit is a guaranteed funding structure that combines stable, competitive prices and long-term contracts for energy generated using renewable sources. Ontario is seeking to double its use of renewable sources through the scheme.
