ETHOSOLAR ENCOURAGES HOME OWNERS, FARMERS, CHURCHES AND MUNICIPALITIES TO SUBMIT MICROFIT APPLICATIONS NOW

EthoSolar is urging anyone interested in pursuing solar PV microFIT projects to apply now before the program's procurement target has been achieved

(Barrie, Ontario – March 21, 2013) The opportunity to apply for a microFIT contract with the Ontario Power Authority is soon coming to an end. The program's procurement target of 50 megawatts is close to being reached. Based on the number of microFIT contracts that have been awarded and the rate of applications being submitted, we estimate the program will close within the next two to three weeks.


As a demonstrated partner having completed over 500 microFIT solar PV systems across the Province, EthoSolar is encouraging homeowners, farmers, churches and municipalities to act now and apply for a microFIT contract today.

By submitting a microFIT application for installing a PV solar system on your rooftop you are at no risk. There is no microFIT application fee. There is also no obligation to construct the solar project should you change your mind if awarded a microFIT contract. However, should you choose not to submit an application in time you will lose out on an exceptional opportunity to generate passive income (20 year contract) and contribute to clean energy generation.

The EthoSolar team is willing to help interested parties submit a microFIT contract application with no development costs. "The ROI for a microFIT solar installation is up to 14% given the reduced cost of materials and with the OPA's current rates" encourages Michelle Bloom Contreras, Marketing Manager of EthoSolar Inc. "In our experience with the microFIT program, once an application has been submitted, it typically takes around two weeks before we know if a contract will be awarded. Our team of experts can help facilitate the application process. Please contact us at 1-855-207-5500 if you would like to submit a microFIT application."

More on the microFIT Program

The microFIT Program was launched in 2009 as part of the Ontario government's efforts to increase renewable energy in the province. The program provides eligible participants the opportunity to develop a small or "micro" renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts (kW) or less in size) on their property. Under this program, microFIT contract holders will be paid a guaranteed price over a 20-year term for all the electricity produced through a solar PV system and delivered to the province's electricity grid.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
