. IMG_2493

Time has run out on MicroFIT. IESO has just announced that as of Dec 10, 2015, the MicroFIT quota of 50 MW has been reached. They will not approve any more contracts for the 2015 year at the price of 38.6 cents per kWh

Changes are coming in microFIT program

Time Running Out for MicroFIT

The IESO will reduce the price they pay per kWh by 26% on January 1, 2016. If customers apply for a contract and are approved before the end of this year, then they get the current rate of 38.4 cents per kWh locked in for a 6 month period. The rush is on! Don’t miss out on current contract pricing!

I have just completed the first year of solar pv operation at my place.

I am very pleased to report that my ten Silfab panels (280 watts) with Enphase micro-inverters have produced 2,200 kilowatt-hours. That provided the equivalent power to fully charge my Volt about 130 times. With an average range of 60 km per charge, that equates to 7,800 km per year driving on sunshine!

On the grid-connected Solaredge system, the annual generation was 7,800 kilowatt hours and my annual gross income was $3,100.

Steve – thanks for suggesting I enlist Rick to see if my place was suitable for solar pv when I was very dubious. Combined with the Volt purchase, this has allowed me to get to almost carbon-zero (85% of my driving is on electric).

Rick- thanks to you and your crew for an excellent install and operation. Please feel free to use my systems (and data) to promote future installs, including the pv + EV option your customers may consider.
