The SOP and Metering for Solar Net Metering : 

The SOP and Metering for Solar Net Metering Use your solar electricity first, then grid electricity If you produce more than you use, you’re account is credited Technology Structure Price SOP Other Programs Site

The Standard Offer Program www.powerauthority.on.ca/SOP : 

The Standard Offer Program www.powerauthority.on.ca/SOP Initiated the campaign in 2004 due to RFP barriers Program announced March 2006 Contract available November 2006 42¢/kWh for Solar Electricity Technology Structure Price SOP Other Programs Site

The SOP and Metering for Solar Standard Offer Program Continued… : 

The SOP and Metering for Solar Standard Offer Program Continued… Toronto Hydro and other Provincial LDCs are finalizing their processes for administering the SOP 2 year review period underway OSEA’s role: Provide feasibility analysis under SOP Technology Structure Price SOP Other Programs Site

The SOP and Metering for Solar Accessing the SOP : 

The SOP and Metering for Solar Accessing the SOP Your Solar PV System is metered separately from your home Local LDC may charge a monthly generators fee – we are working to eliminate this Excellent tax implications with SOP Home Meter SOP Meter Technology Structure Price SOP Other Programs Site

Rationale for the SOP Price Why is Solar Electricity So Great? : 

Rationale for the SOP Price Why is Solar Electricity So Great? Clean energy, offsets pollution sources Increases the efficiency of energy supply (alleviate 9% line losses estimated through transmission) Peak demand leveling… Technology Structure Price SOP Other Programs Site

The Future of Solar Where is the Canadian Solar Industry Going? : 

The Future of Solar Where is the Canadian Solar Industry Going? Revision of the Standard Offer Program Currently ~14 MW PV in Canada, Currently almost 50 MW have secured SOCs. Other Provinces considering a SOP Everyone present in on the leading edge of a huge shift toward urban solar The future is bright for solar!
