Press Release –
The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) is conducting the annual price review to determine the FIT and microFIT pricing structure for 2015. The OPA is required to review the prices offered to generators under the FIT and microFIT Programs on an annual basis to ensure both ratepayer value and a reasonable return on investment.
Per the August 29, 2014 direction, the updated price schedules will be posted by September 30, 2014, to be effective immediately for the FIT Program and to be effective on January 1, 2015 for the microFIT Program.
To help develop the price schedules, the OPA is asking key stakeholders, organizations and associations, representing a wide membership from electricity consumers, developers, Aboriginal communities, generators and distributors, to complete a FIT pricing questionnaire. Their responses will form an important part of the price review and will help the OPA, together with the Ministry of Energy, develop the price schedules.
The list of organizations and associations that have been invited to provide feedback is set out below. We encourage all interested parties to work through their association to provide input. If your interests are not captured by any of the organizations listed, please contact the OPA at[email protected]. The deadline for responses is Friday, September 19, 2014.
