April 25, 2016 — Program update
The IESO will temporarily stop accepting applications to the microFIT Program effective immediately while new program provisions are prepared for microFIT version 4, which will be launched in July.
The IESO is taking this step to protect the integrity of the microFIT Program and consumers. A number of irregular and incomplete applications have been discovered in the past few weeks. As a result, the IESO has decided that the new program provisions for microFIT version 4 should be introduced before accepting new applications.
In early April, the IESO posted a notice on the microFIT website to flag to participants that a new version of the program would be launched in mid-2016, as well as changes that would be introduced.
This next version of microFIT will include a new requirement for a commissioned or notarized declaration form from all applicants and not just those that designate representatives. This additional requirement has been developed to help ensure that all applicants understand the program and process, have access to their My microFIT Home Page and follow the Program Rules.
Other revisions for version 4 will include:
Current microFIT applicants should check their My microFIT Home Page for the status of their application. Existing applications will continue to be processed.
