Solar Incentives, Rebates, and Tax Credits in Canada

Continuous reductions in PV system costs and a handful of provincial incentive programs are slowly, but surely, changing Canada's residential electricity landscape. Motivated by environmental as well as financial reasons, more and more Canadians are switching to solar power.

With its generous rates, Ontario's feed-in-tariff program has created a solar boom in this province. Currently, the vast majority of installed solar capacity in Canada is located in Ontario. However, other provinces and territories are also introducing incentive programs that are designed to stimulate the demand for solar power.
