Ontario has support programs to help co-operatives, municipalities, public sector entities and First Nations and Métis groups to develop and own renewable energy facilities.
These programs help create a greener Ontario by boosting local involvement in renewable energy projects, including wind, solar, bioenergy or hydroelectric ventures.
