Webinar held on Ontario’s new Feed-in Tariff rules
The Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) held an expert panel webinar on Thursday April 26th focused on the status of municipalities powers related to renewable energy project approvals and developments. It was a discussion of whether municipalities have been stripped of a voice in deciding what happens in their backyards.
The webinar (April 26th from 11 AM to 1 PM) also focused on the following questions:
- Are the current responsibilities and powers of municipalities related to the Renewable Energy Approvals process inadequate?
- What responsibilities do developers have under the Renewable Energy Approvals process?
- Do existing policies, programs, funding structures, responsibilities and powers need to be refined, added or removed?
- What are the keys for your commercial and community projects gaining municipal support? - Who are the good guys - what are progressive municipalities doing in Ontario and abroad? - Where can municipalities get help?
- Is the recent FIT Review good news for the role and power of municipalities?
