Electricity Conservation on Ontario Farms - Winter 2010 Edition released

The Ontario Power Authority has just released its Winter 2010 edition of "Electricity Conservation on Ontario Farms", its newsletter designed to "provide information about energy conservation and efficiency and innovative applications to help Ontario farmers better manage their electricity costs."  In this issue, OPA discusses the opportunity to generate and sell solar energy under the province's micro-FIT program. 

I attended the Western Fair Farm Show in London last Wednesday.  Although most of what I saw was much the same as in previous years, the one change I noted was the proliferation of solar energy businesses participating in the show.  These companies obviously see an opportunity to supply solar energy technology to farmers with the micro-FIT program in place. 

Does anyone else who attended the show have comments about the solar energy options being presented?
