Improvements to Feed-In Tariff Will Increase Ontario’s Competitiveness: Unprecedented Environment and Industry Coalition Delivers Proposal to Strengthen Ontario’s Renewable Energy Policy
Toronto, ON – The Green Energy Act Alliance and Shine Ontario Association have joined forces to present a clear path for renewable energy in Ontario by releasing the Ontario Feed-in Tariff 2011 Review: More Jobs, Affordable, Clean Energy, and a Brighter Future for Ontario report today. Respectively, the groups represent Canada’s leading environmental and energy groups, as well as the key players in Canada’s solar industry.
The report is being submitted in response to the government’s two-year feed-in tariff (FIT) review process. Its goal is to ensure that new green jobs continue to be created, that Ontario residents be given more opportunities to participate in community renewable projects, and that FIT prices be reduced in 2012 for new projects to reflect the success of Ontario’s burgeoning solar industry and the reduction in solar prices globally.
