A solar incentive is a financial program offered by any federal, provincial/state, and local government towards the installation of solar panels. These financial incentives are implemented via policies geared towards the promotion of energy independence, job creation and carbon emission reduction.

Since the Ontario government canceled more than 738 solar rooftop projects earlier this year, the solar industry has been urging the government to create a new free-market regulatory regime in the province.

All but the largest projects are on hold until the red tape that surrounds connecting to the grid in Ontario can be trimmed or eliminated, according to John Gorman, president of the Canadian Solar Industries Association.

Concerned about the cost of Ontario electricity, the Doug Ford government canceled 759 solar and wind projects in June and ended the Green Energy Act — which was paying higher rates for renewable energy that was fed into the provincial grid — in December.
