About the Feed-in Tariff

The four Kabinakagami River waterpower facilities have received contracts from the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) under the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) Program. Under the FIT program, the OPA agrees to buy renewable energy generated by eligible projects at fixed prices under long term power purchase agreements.

The Ontario FIT program promotes the beneficial development of renewable energy projects, which would be difficult to construct without a long term power purchase agreement contract.
