The attached analysis surveys the renewable electricity supply projects proposed to the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) under the provincial government’s Feed-In Tariff program, the contracts offered by the OPA as of early May 2010, and the consumer impacts.
Free farm outbuildings!!! Just when I thought it couldn’t get much worse.
Who gave McGuinty the right to open OUR wallets to the “money mongers” of the World?
Oh, right..nobody……..he just removed our Planning Authority at the Municipal level which would have given us “control” over these deals.
Then he declared: “have at ‘er boys!”
Tom, are you sure 40’x200′ is correct? That is a really long shed!
That’s the dimensions for the single building used with a 100 kW system. For a larger 250 kW system, they’ll install TWO buildings at 40′ x 250′ each. See more at http://www.haysolar.com.
Thanks for the information, Bruce. Next thing you know, we will have fitness clubs applying to the FIT program for connecting their treadmills and exercise bikes up to the grid.
This is a very revealing leaked document regarding Spain’s experience with renewable energy. Reality has a way of eventually surfacing in these matters.
Now there are free solar panels for Ontario households too. As this proponent notes on its site, “This opportunity will not last long”.
Renewable energy is the future, why depend on fossil fuels when we can go renewable.*`:
Renewable Energy got into more focuse in this decade because everyone does not want to depend on Oil.;;;
If we are talking about electricity supplies in jurisdictions like Hawaii, Mexico, or Jamaica where oil-fired power provides a significant faction of the electricity supply, then renewable electricity could conceivably lower oil dependence. If we are talking about Ontario, the opposite is the case. Increasing renewable electricity supply is in Ontario is coupled with vastly increasing Ontario’s reliance on natural gas, the most viable oil substitute.
