You are able to generate electricity for your own use and we have programs to allow you to push the excess generation to the grid. There are two basic programs:
- Net Metering – You generate electricity and excess energy will flow into the grid. This excess will be credited back to your account. This is further broken down into two categories:
- Under 10kW
- Over 10kW
- FIT – This program ended in 2018, however, NOTL Hydro has approximately 145 accounts that have signed up for, and are still generating, with this program. All generation is paid to the customer based on the contract they have with the IESO.
