The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) is reporting that, as of June 14, 2010, it has received 2,200 applications for large Feed-in Tariff (FIT) projects and more than 15,000 applications for smaller microFIT projects. Of the 15,000 microFIT applications, 3,518 conditional offers have been made by OPA to applicants. These smaller projects include solar panel installations being made on Ontario farms.
In response to the large volume of microFIT applications, OPA is advising:
Due to the very high volume of microFIT applications, we expect it will take until the fall to process all of them. If your application was submitted before March 31, 2010, you can expect to hear back from us by August. If you submitted your application by May 31, it will be processed by September.More information on the FIT program (including large area solar installations and large wind turbines) is available at: OPA Feed-in Tariff Program.
