Ontario Feed in Tariff (FIT) and MicroFIT programs: Solar for building owners
As part of the Green Energy Act, the Ontario Power Authority has implemented a Feed In Tariff (FIT) program, that pays a premium price for green electricity produced by home and business owners. Be sure to check out our FAQ, and contact us to learn how to make the FIT work for you.
Well, they've done it again
Yes, in all their wisdom, the brilliant folks at the IESO have suspended the MicroFIT program. Again. Yes, again. New rules are being developed and applications are to re-open in July. So what does one do?
Generation Solar has moved!
After 10+ years in our cozy straw bale workshop overlooking Roger's Cove on Little Lake, we have moved to a larger shop across town. The new location has more office space, more storage space, and more workshop space.
Is Net Metering the way to go?

How to get the most out of your MicroFIT contract

- It has been a great pleasure working with you, the project has gone very smoothly. We are very pleased and we look forward to continuing our relationship with you over the next 20 years as we generate power.
- I was a great relief to find Generation Solar, after having numerous unpleasant dealings with my initial installer. Their responsiveness and professionalism were top notch. They represented me in dealings with my equipment manufacturer over a warranty issue and produced results that I don't feel I could have on my own. Most importantly, they did what they said they would and kept me informed every step of the way. I would not hesitate recommending Generation Solar and look forward to a continued relationship with them.
- I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the system you and your team installed. Things have been running great. Checking the inverter for the daily output has been part of my routine, and I enjoy counting the kW. Thanks so much for all the work, professionalism and guidance on this project. You and your team are great.
- Wanted you to know that Jackson and Geordie were Amazing and very helpful, hard working in the heat. They did an Awesome job and were very tidy, a hot weather bonus is probably in order though they did say they love working for you.
