MicroFIT - Income From Your Solar System

MicroFIT is a program open to Ontario residents to receive payments for solar electricity generated on their properties and delivered to the utility.The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) will pay 29.4¢ per kilowatt hour delivered for roof mounted systems and 21.4¢ for ground mounted solar arrays.

It’s easier than ever to put solar to work on any home connected to the electrical utility grid with HES PV’s Grid-Tie Systems. These complete packages combine the latest HES solar modules and the highest quality inverters for complete, reliable and fully compatible rooftop solutions.

Why Invest in a MicroFIT System?

On a roof with good solar exposure, an HES MicroFIT system can generate up to $450 per year for each kilowatt of solar. Solar is so dependable it’s like a 20 year GIC, but on your very own roof! And it's green energy, replacing coal fired electricity in Ontario.
