Over the summer and early fall we wrote about our own experiences with the Ontario MicroFIT program which provides a 20 year contract at a fixed price rate to purchase all of the electricity a household or farm can produce.
In our case we were considering installing solar panels on the south-ish facing and the west-south facing roof of our home.
We haven’t yet proceeded. As of the time this article was written, we had not yet received our conditional contract from the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) even though we submitted our application in July of this year.
In fact, the status of our application was changed from Submitted to Info Received on October 25, 2010.
However, we thought you might like to have a listing of the MicroFIT related articles we have written this year, including the ones on our analysis on the financial viability vs simply making RRSP contributions.
This includes the details of an on line solar assessment for both our south and west facing roofs.
A solar PV installation for your home is not cheap; it can cost as much or more than a new car. So, you have to pay attention to the financial details of the potential investment. You also should compare the cost of a solar panel installation to other types of investments.
So, here is that listing; enjoy:
