Are you tired of high electricity bills?

Frustrated because your utility doesn’t offer alternative low-cost energy options?

Join the movement to support lower electricity bills and greater energy independence.

 An affordable energy solution for Ontario.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Ontario families, small businesses, and employers deserve more than high electricity bills and a lack of consumer choice. 

What if the new provincial government could help provide a real solution that helped you lower your electricity bill while providing you with more energy options?

You Can Make A Difference

Together we can encourage the new provincial government to help make this happen. 

If the new government reduces solar industry red tape and makes regulatory changes, it would reduce the cost of solar energy and eliminate the need for families to make an upfront investment or even have a roof (for example, if you rent or live in a condo). 

These changes would help make the benefits of solar energy – like lowering your electricity bill – more accessible to all Ontarians, not just the wealthy.

A people-first energy solution.


Solar energy provides the Government of Ontario with a great opportunity to help Ontario families, farmers and small businesses lower their energy bills today and protect them against electricity rate hikes tomorrow, while gaining greater energy independence. 

To do this, the government can make regulatory changes. 

Here’s how:

Cutting red tape will help eliminate unnecessary costs making solar energy more affordable.

Regulatory changes can drive private market forces eliminating the need for you to make the upfront investment for solar.

Promoting consumer choice provides you with more energy options to save money on your bill (even if you don’t have a roof!).

Rooftop Investment Solar

Rooftop solar is a proven, practical and clean way to generate and consume your own energy. Any excess energy you provide to the grid gives you credits that can be applied to your next month’s bill (through a mechanism called net metering).  In this case, customers are only billed for their net electricity use (i.e. the difference between what they generate and consume).

But I Don’t Have a Roof! You can still benefit.

What if you live in an apartment, condo or don’t have the space or layout for rooftop solar? 

There is still a way you can benefit from solar energy to lower your energy bill (through a mechanism called virtual net metering)!

This option enables you to “sign up” to a solar project located somewhere else in your community which adds energy to the grid. You receive credits – based on the size of your share in the solar project – that are applied to your electricity bill, helping you to lower your bill. Although this type of option is not available yet in Ontario, it is very popular in numerous US states.


No Up-Front Investment Solar

Many companies in the US provide options to families and their customers to put solar panels on their home to lower their electricity bill without the large upfront investment (through third-party ownership mechanisms). Although this type of option is not available yet in Ontario, it is very popular in numerous US states.

Economic Benefit

Solar energy creates more jobs than any other energy source. Most of these jobs are good, local jobs in skilled trades from installers to electricians to technicians. Since 2008, renewable energy ventures, including solar energy projects, have invested over $14 billion in Ontario’s economy. 

Current job numbers show 5,000 Ontarians are employed in the industry, which is growing rapidly. If the new provincial government reduces solar industry red tape and makes regulatory changes, it will spur local job creation in the skilled trades.
