microFIT Program

The microFIT Program supports the development of small renewable energy projects, such as solar panel installations. Home owners and other program participants get paid for the power they produce at a guaranteed rate, earning a return on their investment and contributing to a cleaner environment. 

Holiday Maintenance, New Price Schedule and Version Change – December 12, 2016

microFIT Maintenance
After December 17, 2016, applications will no longer be set to Pending LDC Offer to Connect in 2016. This is to allow LDCs enough time to report connection request information prior to the Holiday Maintenance period.

From 12:00 p.m. December 23, 2016, to January 4, 2017, all functions of the My microFIT Home Page will be unavailable. The My microFIT Home Page will be returned to full service on January 4, 2017.

Price Schedule Change
All active microFIT applications that have not been set to Pending Connection status and have not been issued an Application Approval Notice prior to January 1, 2017, will be subject to the 2017 FIT/microFIT Price Schedule. The IESO will not make exceptions after the 2017 Price Schedule comes into effect.

In order for the IESO to issue Application Approval Notices prior to January 1, 2017, LDCs must report all Offers to Connect to the IESO no later than 12:00 p.m. on December 23, 2016.  If you have received an Offer to Connect from your LDC, and the status of your application has not yet been changed to “Pending Connection,” please contact your LDC directly. You can verify the status of your application by logging into your My microFIT Home Page.

microFIT Version Change
On January 1, 2017, Version 4.1 of the microFIT Program comes into effect. The only change being made is the implementation of the 2017 FIT/microFIT Price Schedule; no other changes are being made to the microFIT Program at this time. All active applications that have not been set to Pending Connection status prior to January 1, 2017, will automatically be considered under version 4.1.
