Many home, farm and small business owners have installed "green" energy technology to generate their own electricity and reduce their monthly costs. These systems are powered from renewable sources such as wind, flowing water or sunlight and provide environmental benefits.

FIT / MicroFIT Contracts 

The MicroFIT program was discontinued in December 2017. New applications are no longer being accepted. To make changes to the name, mailing address or contact on your MicroFIT or FIT account, please submit the request for change, directly to the Independent Electricity System Operator. Energy+ is unable to make these account changes, until the IESO acknowledges the customer changes. More information is available from the IESO.

Reassigning a MicroFIT Contract

If you've purchased a home, or sold a home, with solar panels, your next step should be to contact the Independent Electricity System Operators (IESO) and our Customer Care Team to provide details about the transfer of ownership of the property.  Learn more about the required steps on how to Reassign a Generation Contract

Net Metering Program

Our Net Metering Program is available to any GrandBridge Energy. customer who generates electricity primarily for their own use from a renewable energy source (wind, water, solar radiation or agricultural biomass). 

If a customer produces more renewable energy than they can use during that monthly billing period, the excess generation is banked for future use within the following 12 months.  The customer will receive a credit or an adjustment on their monthly hydro bill for the energy exported, up to a maximum of the value of electricity consumed from our grid. 

Please note that Net Metering customers are still subject to Service Charges and Regulatory Charges on their monthly hydro bill. If you wish to enter Net Metering agreement, you must be on the Regulatory Pricing Plan. Your rates cannot be supplied by a Retailer. 

Learn more about how to get your Net Metering project up and running.

Load Displacement

Load displacement refers to a generation facility that’s connected on the customer side of a connection point where the output is used exclusively for the customer's own consumption. 

It allows customers to offset their consumption, and better manage their energy requirements, and cost, through generation. 

Load displacement has a number of potential advantages, including:

  • Lowered energy costs as customers can charge their battery during off-peak rates and use it during peak times to help reduce their energy costs
  • Enhanced energy resiliency during outages as it serves as an alternate source of power
  • Helps mitigate impacts of rising rates as it offsets energy costs

For more information on load displacement and how we can help email, our Generation Team.
