Join CanSIA to participate in the NEW Ontario Net Metering Working Group
In Ontario, the solar industry is being held back by the lack of a clear regulatory framework to enable both Virtual Net Metering (VNM), also known as Community Solar, and Third-Party Ownership (3PO) of on-site solar.
With the province facing a rapidly emerging generation supply needs and mounting public pressure to act on climate change, CanSIA believes that now is a pivotal time to step up our advocacy efforts with an aim to achieve 3PO and VNM regulations that will create new market opportunities for the Ontario solar industry.
CanSIA is therefore launching an
Ontario Net Metering Working Group, through which we will work collaboratively with key stakeholders, including municipalities, Indigenous communities, commercial and industrial sector stakeholders, and NGOs in advocating for regulations that will enable VNM and 3PO. This group will be a dedicated forum for dialogue on net metering policy and regulation, where we will seek members' input in developing our positions and provide members with updates on CanSIA's ongoing advocacy efforts at Queen's Park.
We envision the time commitment for member participants being a monthly conference call, various email updates from CanSIA throughout the month as necessary, and possibly a quarterly in-person meeting in Toronto.
