Purchasing or selling a property with an existing microFIT Facility

The microFIT Program was established to support the development of small or “micro” renewable electricity generation projects (≤10 kilowatts (kW)), such as solar panel installations. As of December 1, 2017, the IESO officially closed the application window for the microFIT Program and ceased accepting any further applications.

An assignment is required when an owner intends to assign all of its rights and obligations under a microFIT procurement contract under which the output of a micro-embedded generation facility is sold to a different legal entity or individual(s).
