July 17, 2015 - Annual Price Review
The IESO has commenced the annual price review to determine the FIT and microFIT pricing structure for 2016. The IESO is required to review the prices offered to generators on an annual basis to ensure they receive a reasonable return on investment under the FIT and microFIT Programs. As part of the current price review, the IESO will focus on ensuring ratepayer value, with consideration of global renewable generation cost trends and prior application volumes.
To help develop the 2016 price schedules, the IESO has posted a pricing questionnaire that may be completed and submitted by any interested party. The responses received will form an important part of the price review and will help the IESO develop the 2016 price schedules. The deadline for responses is Friday, August 14, 2015. Please email your completed questionnaire to FIT@ieso.ca. Please note that feedback not directly related to the price review will not be considered at this time.
April 23, 2015: microFIT 2015 Program Update
Due to the ongoing work in transitioning the microFIT Program to a net-metering initiative, there will be no substantial changes to the microFIT Program for 2015. This year’s annual procurement target is 50 MW. Please see the April 7, 2015, directive from the Minister of Energy for further information.
The IESO received input on potential changes to the microFIT program through more than 45 written submissions from a broad range of stakeholders and communities between December 1, 2014 and January 23, 2015. While there are no changes to the microFIT Program at this time, these submissions have been reviewed and shared with the Ministry of Energy. The IESO thanks all those who contributed feedback. en français »
