Solar power is attracting growing interest in Canada, led by Ontario, which introduced a feed-in tariff program as part of its Green Energy Act. Ontario is the first North American jurisdiction to adopt a feed-in-tariff model. Similar programs internationally have helped propel those countries to world leadership in both solar power generation and component manufacturing.

The Ontario FIT Program includes domestic content requirements that mandate a percentage of locally made equipment. This feature aims to boost the province’s manufacturing sector, to provide green jobs and to spur solar development efforts.

Northland has received 130 MW of FIT contracts for ground-mounted solar projects. In addition, we are actively seeking joint-venture partners for new projects.
