Many home, farm and small business owners are considering the installation of "green" energy technology to generate their own electricity and reduce their monthly costs. Where these systems are powered from renewable sources such as wind, flowing water or sunlight, they also provide environmental benefits.

The Indpendent Electrical System Operator's (IESO) Feed-in-Tariff Program encourages renewable energy generation projects across Ontario. It provides a way for Ontarians to get paid by connecting their renewable energy projects to the province's electricity distribution system.
Under Feed-In-Tariff, you are paid a guaranteed price for the electricity your renewable project generates over a period of 20 years. Feed-in-Tariff installations are classified as FIT or microFIT based on how many kilowatts of electricity they generate. More about the Energy+ requirements for Renewable Generation (PDF).
Discover the steps required to get your FIT project up and running. This program is for renewable projects that generate more than 10 kilowatts (kW) of electricity. Learn more about the FIT Program at the IESO website.
The microFIT program is for renewable projects that generate 10 kilowatts (kW) or less of electricity. Discover the 10 simple steps for getting your microFIT project up and running. Learn more about the microFIT Program at the IESO website.
Net Metering Program
Our Net Metering Program is available to any Energy+ Inc. customer who generates electricity primarily for their own use from a renewable energy source (wind, water, solar radiation or agricultural biomass), using equipment with a total nameplate rating of 500 kilowatts (kW) or less. Learn more about how to get your Net Metering project up and running.
