May 14, 2013: Initial Reviews Completed for Small FIT Applications
The OPA received almost 4,000 Small FIT applications from across the province during the application window that opened on December 14, 2012, and closed on January 18, 2013.
The OPA, together with an independent Evaluation Monitor, has now completed its review to determine if the applications were complete and eligible. Over the next week, all applicants will receive a message on their My FIT Home Page on the status of their applications.
Applications that passed both the completeness and eligibility reviews will move onto the transmission and distribution availability testing in the order in which they have been ranked, according to the priority points awarded during the review process. The time stamp has been used to determine the order where applications had the same number of points.
Up to 200 MW of contracts are expected to be offered in the summer of 2013 to applications that pass the transmission and distribution availability testing once testing is complete.
Applications that did not pass the completeness and eligibility reviews will be terminated and will not be subject to further testing.
