Toronto gets feed in tarrifs – we don't – we wonder why.
Quote “Renewable energy in Ontario got a massive boost Thursday with the proposal of a fixed-price plan that, by June, could see the province paying out generous premiums to large and small generators of green power.
The premiums – called advanced feed-in tariffs – are what the government guarantees to pay over the life a 20-year contract with sellers of electricity produced from the sun, wind, water and biomass, regardless of project size.” –
Comment – why don;t we have proper feed in tarrifs here? because it doesnt suit the interestes of the big utilities, who clearly control energy policy, and no surprise, don’t want to sell less of their conventional power by encouraging more power from small entrants……Ed
