If you are a homeowner, small business, farmer, or if you manage an institution such as a school or place of worship, you have the opportunity to have a solar system installed on your property. Under the microFIT program you are paid a guaranteed fixed price over a 20-year term for all the electricity your solar system delivers to the electricity grid.
The MicroFIT program began accepting applications on October 1st, 2009, and was scheduled to run for 2 years before a review would be completed. The review of the program commenced on September 1st, 2011, and was expected to be completed in 2 months. The draft microFIT 2.0 rules were released on April 5th, 2012, and the finalized rules were scheduled to be released on May 4th, 2012. Currently the new program has not been finalized, and participants are still waiting for the updated program release from the OPA.
During the review period, interested parties can still contact us to find out more details about the program and renewable energy opportunities.
