The OPA received almost 4,000 Small FIT applications from across the province during the application window that opened on December 14, 2012, and closed on January 18, 2013.
Applications that passed both the completeness and eligibility reviews will move onto the transmission and distribution availability testing in the order in which they have been ranked, according to the priority points awarded during the review process. The time stamp has been used to determine the order where applications had the same number of points.
Up to 200 MW of contracts are expected to be offered in the summer of 2013 to applications that pass the transmission and distribution availability testing once testing is complete.

Re: World Trade Organization Decision
Dear CanSIA Members and solar energy stakeholders,
Japan brought the case to the WTO in 2010, arguing that domestic content requirement in Ontario violated international trade agreements. It was joined in the action by European Union and the United States. This week the WTO turned down an appeal by Canada. CanSIA is currently assessing what the implications of the decision are to the industry.
We will continue to monitor what the ruling means to the solar industry in Ontario, promoting the need for a stable government policy. We are committed to seeing government procure solar as an important part of Ontario's clean, affordable supply mix.

On Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013, the Boulder County Board of Commissioners adopted the most recent—and progressive–building codes for energy efficiency and added requirements that all new homes be wired for electric vehicles and solar panels.
The new codes also have an added requirement that builders either install solar panels for generating electricity or heating water or the wiring and/or conduit for future solar installations.
Homes built to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code codes that the commissioners adopted are tightly constructed and fine-tuned for very efficient heating and cooling. with the addition of solar panels, they are likely be net zero energy, meaning that they produce as much power as they use.

A new opinion poll commissioned by Friends of the Earth Canada shows overwhelming support for green energy in Ontario, and strong opposition to the World Trade Organization (WTO)’s meddling in buy local programs that create thousands of green jobs for Ontarians.The survey conducted by Oraclepoll Research found that 83% of Ontarians believe it is important to have more renewable, green energy in Ontario to deal with climate change and help reduce record levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Only 11% of respondents believe that it is not important to take action.The survey also found that there is strong opposition to the WTO’s recent challenge of Ontario’s buy local green energy policies. Almost three-quarters (73%) of respondents feel that the WTO should not be able to override Ontario’s plans to encourage investment in green energy, while only 27% believe that it should.“This opinion poll shows that there is overwhelming support for green energy in Ontario. This strong support should translate into action - governments should encourage the transition to solar and wind power to help reduce record levels of greenhouse gases,” says Beatrice Olivastri, CEO, Friends of the Earth Canada.
The Oraclepoll Research survey was commissioned by Friends of the Earth Canada and conducted on November 21-23, 2012. A total of 1,000 people were surveyed, with a margin of error of +/- 3.1%, 19/20 times. For more details visit Friends of the Earth’s website at foecanada.org.
