ecoENERGY for Renewable Power

The ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program was launched in April 2007 to encourage the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources such as wind, low-impact hydro, biomass, photovoltaic and geothermal energy. Although no new contribution agreements have been signed after March 31, 2011, projects with contribution agreements receive a one cent per kilowatt-hour (kWh) incentive for eligible production during their first ten years of operation. The program itself will end on March 31, 2021.

As of March 31, 2011, 104 projects qualified for funding under the program representing investments of about $1.4 billion over 14 years and almost 4500 megawatts of renewable power capacity.
