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. 

microFIT Program Update - July 12, 2017

This is to advise that 2017 is the last year that the IESO will accept applications for the microFIT Program. The IESO will accept applications under the microFIT Program up to and including Thursday, December 28, 2017, or until the 50 MW procurement target is reached. As of July 7, 2017, there was 28 MW remaining in the 2017 procurement target. Updates on the amount of capacity remaining in the 2017 Annual Procurement Target can be found in the microFIT bi-weekly reports. The IESO is required to stop accepting applications under the microFIT Program by December 31, 2017, as per the direction issued by the Minister of Energy on April 5, 2016.

Any microFIT application that is submitted to the IESO on or before 11:59 p.m. EPT on December 28, 2017, will be processed in accordance with the microFIT Rules. Applications will not be automatically terminated on December 31. 

Please be advised that applicants whose applications do not meet program requirements and are terminated after December 28, 2017, will not have an opportunity to submit a new one. As such, please review your application carefully prior to submitting it to the IESO to ensure that it meets all of the completeness and eligibility requirements, and continue to monitor your application through your My microFIT Home Page to ensure that it is progressing in accordance with the timelines outlined in the microFIT Rules.
