FIT update

The Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program recently re-launched into its third iteration (AKA "version 3.0") with a new price schedule, guaranteeing the rates until December 31, 2014:

Type of solar System size FIT price (¢/kWh)
rooftop PV ≤ 10 kW 39.6
> 10 kW ≤ 100 kW 34.5
> 100 kW ≤ 500 kW 32.9
groundmount PV ≤ 10 kW 29.1
> 10 kW ≤ 500 kW 28.8

Solar electricity with the microFIT program is currently one of the best investments you can make to your property, netting up to 14% return with a guaranteed 20-year contract. By feeding all of the electricity generated into the public utility grid, you are powering your neighbourhood with energy from the sun - and the hydro company pays you to do it!

A typical 10 kW system in Southwestern Ontario generates 13 000 kWh of electricity in a year, making about $5 000 for the system owner per year, giving a return on investment of over 14%.

By turning your roof into an investment, you are effectively adding a tenant who lives on your roof, never misses a monthly payment, and makes no noise. Contact us for more information.

A solar electric PV system under the microFIT program is an excellent investment.


Upcoming events

The day was set up to provide secondary students and teachers the opportunity to listen, learn, and interact in workshops full of environmental ideas, and hands-on experiences.

SunTap Technologies was on hand with samples of solar equipment to inform students and teachers about the environmental benefits of utilising solar energy, and how exactly solar power works. It was great talking to so many engaged and interested students!
