Ontario to improve property tax assessment policies for renewable energy
By Anthony Capkun
January 4, 2012 – The Government of Ontario says it is supporting property owners who install renewable energy technologies by improving property tax assessment policies for them.
The changes will provide “greater clarity” by creating additional categories for property tax assessment based on the size and location of energy generation. The move, says the government, will encourage property owners to continue to install and use renewable energy technologies.
The amendments will apply to facilities generating electricity from solar or wind energy, or anaerobic digestion.
