Tired of Rising Hydro Bills that are out of your control?
Take Control of your Energy Costs with Net-Metering!
The Ontario Net-Metering program is a great way of using a renewable energy technology to generate your own electricity and lock in your electricity price.
If you don't like the idea of being locked into a contract with a MicroFIT or FIT solar system, Net-Metering might be the perfect solution for you.
How does it work?
Once you’re connected to the distribution system, your
local distribution company will continue to read your
meter just as they do now and then subtract the value
of electricity you supply to the grid from the value of
what you take from the grid. What you’ll see on your
bill is the “net” difference between these two amounts.
If you supply more power than what you take from the
grid over the billing cycle, you’ll receive a credit toward
future energy bills. The credit can be carried
forward for up to 12 months.
