What is the Feed-in Tariff Program?
Ontario’s feed-in tariff or FIT Program is North America’s first comprehensive guaranteed pricing structure for renewable electricity production for projects over 10 kilowatts. It offers stable prices under long-term contracts for energy generated from renewable sources, including:
- solar photovoltaic (PV)
- on-shore and off-shore wind
- landfill gas
The FIT Program was enabled by the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, 2009Â which was passed into law on May 14, 2009. The Independent Electricity System Operator is responsible for implementing the program.

Generate Power… and Money
Get paid to generate renewable energy at home or work for projects 10 kilowatts or less, and sell it to the electricity grid.
Consider the benefits of generating your own green energy, such as solar, wind, water or bioenergy, and selling it to the electricity grid.
You will be paid an attractive price for all the electricity you produce and that price will be guaranteed for decades.
