Ontario’s got a new feed-in tariff, and the largest supermarket chain in Canada, Loblaw, is looking to take advantage of it.

It will be putting solar panels on the roofs of four of its supermarkets to start with, but plans to eventually do so on over 100 of its Ontario stores (if all goes well).

Chip in a few dollars a month to help support independent cleantech coverage that helps to accelerate the cleantech revolution!

The feed-in tariffs in the province are “between 53.9 and 80.2 ¢/kWh, with 20-year contracts,” Michael Graham Richard of TreeHugger reports.

The Ontario Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, Brad Duguid ,announced that the “Ontario Power Authority had approved more than 100 Loblaw applications for rooftop solar installations on their stores through the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program of the Green Energy Act” last week.
