The city of Dryden was among the first municipalities in Ontario to investigate the potential for selling renewable energy to the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) as a municipal revenue stream. At first lobbying to overcome initial restrictions on power production in our area, then spending several hundred thousand dollars to study project feasibility, select a site, consult the public and partner with a private firm to apply for a feed-in-tariff contract — Dryden finds its application for a FiT contract stalled by the OPA.
Dryden’s application is currently ranked 12th in the region and 114th overall in the province. Seemingly in limbo, the city is hoping that political pressure through the Association of Municipalities of Ontario will expose bias in the structure of the OPA feed-in-tariff rules.
