How massive is the waste of OUR tax dollars in Ontario on the “Green Energy Scam”? ……………. see it here!

Posted: December 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

No wonder McGuinty doesn’t have enough tax money left to pay teachers, hospitals, fix roads or even pay income tax return refunds on time any more!

Here’s a Scam that boosted our Hydro rates up the gazoo and basically ruined our whole industrial base in Ontario for decades to come, YET it still plods along sucking valuable dollars out of our pockets for little or zero return!

Commumity Energy Partnerships Program

The Community Energy Partnerships Program (CEPP) is a grant program to support community power in Ontario. We assist community power projects through funding support of up to $500,000.  Funding opportunities for renewable energy education projects are also available to assist not-for-profit, charitable and co-operative organizations in Ontario.

Background

In the fall of 2009, the Ontario Minister of Energy and Infrastructure directed the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) to establish the Community Energy Partnerships Program to facilitate the participation of Ontario communities in the development of renewable energy generation facilities; in particular to assist communities in paying for some of the soft costs associated with the development of renewable energy projects.

The most recent direction, issued by the Minister of Energy on November 23, 2012 directs the OPA to provide limited funding support for projects that are not yet subject to a FIT Contract.

Governance

The directing body of the CEPP is the Review Committee, which consists of seven members and a Fairness Monitor.

Review Committee members are leaders in their field with expertise in the renewable energy market, finance, project development, and senior management. 

The Fairness Monitor observes the meetings of the Review Committee, is privy to all the same information, and ensures that a fair process is followed for all decisions, that the evaluation criteria are adhered to, and that applications are reviewed and evaluated in a reasonable time.

 

Project Grants Awarded

The Community Energy Partnerships Program has awarded 155 project grants representing over 93 MW of new, community-owned renewable energy projects.

    Good response in return of this question with genuine arguments and describing all regarding that.

  2. Hydro rates are out of control and climbing; income taxes and property taxes grow ever larger; boondoggles are found everywhere; more and more people are on some sort of welfare; debts are so large that the unborn will be saddled with them; … and we still ask our government do ‘do something’ about every little problem? Do we need a whack on the side of the head or what?
