Ontario announces changes to the FIT program
The Government of Ontario
Ontario is increasing local control over future renewable energy projects to support municipalities and secure the province's clean energy future. Working with the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and municipalities, the province will develop a competitive procurement process for renewable projects over 500 kilowatts (kW). The new process will replace the existing large project stream of the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program and better meet the needs of communities. It will require energy planners and developers to work directly with municipalities to identify appropriate locations and site requirements for any future large renewable energy project.

The OPG, the government-owned company that produces most of the province's power, proposed a 6.5 per cent increase in rates in 2010.
