Definition of Community Power - Ontario Solar Energy Association

Ontario continues to be North America's leader in community owned energy. This shows how solar gardens and a feed-in tariff can work hand in hand.


What is Community Power

Community Power is a class of sustainable energy projects that are owned, developed and controlled in full or in part (50 per cent or more) by residents of the community in which the project is located.  Under the OSEA definition, Community Power proponents include local residents, farmer collaboratives, co-operatives, First Nations, municipalities and other institutions working to develop local sustainable energy projects.
