To prepare for the opening of the next FIT application period in early November 2013, the OPA is making draft versions of the FIT 3 Program Rules, Contract and Standard Definitions available for comment.  Feedback on the draft documents will be accepted until September 20, 2013. These drafts are intended to reflect the policy decisions of the Minister of Energy as indicated in the June 12, 2013, and August 16, 2013, directions.
  
Submit your comments by emailing this feedback form to FITsubmissions@powerauthority.on.ca by September 20, 2013.
  
The OPA is hosting a webinar on September 11, 2013, to review and obtain feedback on the draft FIT 3 documents. 
  
The OPA is hosting a second webinar on September 12, 2013 to review and obtain feedback on the Unconstructed Rooftop Solar Pilot program.  The draft FIT 3 Rules contain certain tailored provisions for applicants who want to participate in the Unconstructed Rooftop Solar Pilot program, including a separate procurement target of 15 megawatts (MW). The timeline for the pilot program will be the same as for other FIT applicants who will apply in the fall 2013 application period.
 
Read the draft FIT 3 documents, and find out more about the webinars on the FIT website.
 
For other important dates, see the draft 2013 FIT and microFIT procurement schedule as well as a preliminary schedule for 2014 and 2015. These draft schedules are meant to assist prospective applicants and are subject to change.
 
We look forward to your feedback on the draft documents.
