Ontario’s microFIT Program has resulted in more than 26,000 contracts and has encouraged individuals, schools, municipalities, co-operatives and Indigenous communities to participate in clean energy projects and make meaningful contributions to a cleaner environment.

Solar Ontario Presentation – FIT and microFIT Update - May 17 2016
