NEW! Ontario Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) Program Update Jan. 21:
The MicroFIT program is still active (Jan. 21, 2017) and available for residential solar PV systems of 10 Kilowatts and under. The rates paid for electricity for new contracts have dropped by $0.006 per kilowatt-hour for roof-mounted systems. The new rate is now $0.288/Kwh for PV systems between 6 and 10 Kilowatts.
Call or email us for more information.
Update: Dec. 16, 2016 - the IESO has cancelled all of FIT 6, which was the Feed In Tariff program for 2017 (for systems larger than 10 Kw). Only new MicroFIT projects will be approved in 2017 - until Dec 31, 2017 - assuming it's not cancelled early as well...

Why hire Solar Ontario? We've been around for 15 year and we take a practical, honest, engineered / technical approach to solar. No solar myths or green-washing hype are pushed here. Also, when we are designing a solar system we are not limited to using only one manufacturer - we can choose from among many suppliers and solar panels for the best product for your specific application - unlike our competition who often try to make the one product they carry try and fit every type of application. We serve the residential, commercial, municipal and industrial solar markets throughout Ontario. We make Solar in Ontario work!
