Posts Tagged ‘Feed In Tariff Ontario’

We’ve been receiving calls and emails asking if Ontario Conservative leader Tim Hudak’s announcement that he will cancel the Feed-in Tarriff or FiT program means the end of proposed industrial wind turbine projects, specifically the one planned for North Gower-south Richmond.

It doesn’t.

What Mr. Hudak said was, if elected, he would end the program which pays exorbitant prices to power generators (13.5 cents per kilowatt hour or kWh for wind, up to 80 cents for solar, at a time when power costs about six cents per kWh in Ontario); any existing contracts would be honoured but no new ones signed.

To the best of our knowledge, the North Gower project is awaiting a test for transmission capacity; once that is complete, it may get a FiT contract, after which the corporate wind developer will follow the process prescribed in the Green Energy and Green Economy Act.

A lot can happen in in the four and a half months leading up to the provincial election.
