BC Hydro's net metering program is designed for residential and commercial customers who wish to connect a small electricity generating unit to the BC Hydro distribution system. Generating units up to 50 kW in capacity that utilize a clean or renewable resource are eligible to participate in the program.
On February 1, 2008, the government of Alberta issued the Micro-Generation Regulation. This regulation allows Albertans to generate their own environmentally friendly electricity and receive credit for any power they send into the electrical grid.

GF2 provides programs and services to achieve a profitable, sustainable, competitive and innovative agriculture, agri-food and agri-products industry that is market-responsive, and that anticipates and adapts to changing circumstances and is a major contributor to the well-being of Canadians.
The Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) is delivering the Net Metering Program on behalf of Projects with generating capacities of 100kW or less that comply with the local utility's net metering policies and enter into net metering contracts with their local electric utilities are eligible for funding under this program.
Net Metering & Rebate
As part of our Net Metering Program, we’re offering a one-time rebate, equivalent to 20 per cent of eligible costs to a maximum payment of $20,000, for an approved and grid interconnected net metering project. The Net Metering Rebate is available to SaskPower, Saskatoon Light & Power and City of Swift Current electricity customers until November 30, 2014.
Customer owned generation (10 MW or less) refers to electricity production that is created by the customer using renewable energy (e.g. wind or solar) or non-renewable energy (e.g. fossil fuels). This generation must meet applicable provincial, federal, and municipal licenses, permits, and approvals. Based on the type of customer owned generation used, the customer can use energy they produce to meet their own needs and/or possibly sell excess production to Manitoba Hydro.
Customer owned generation refers to energy production smaller than 10 megawatts (MW) and at a voltage no greater than 25 kV.
The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) has developed the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Program for the Province of Ontario to encourage and promote greater use of renewable energy sources including on-shore wind, waterpower, renewable biomass, biogas, landfill gas and solar photovoltaic (PV) for electricity generating projects in Ontario. The fundamental objective of the FIT Program, in conjunction with the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, 2009 (Ontario) and Ontario’s Long Term Energy Plan, 2010, is to facilitate the increased development of renewable generating facilities of varying sizes, technologies and configurations via a standardized, open and fair process.
The net metering option allows you to inject the surplus of the power you produce into theHydro-Québec grid.
In exchange, kilowatthour credits are applied to your bill.
Enhanced net metering allows you to connect a small renewable electricity project (e.g., wind turbine, solar panel, etc.) to the distribution grid through a meter that measures electricity flows in two directions.
You get credit for any electricity you feed into the grid and are paid for it at the retail class rate.
Under this program you can supply electricity to multiple meters under one account within a single distribution zone, up to an overall limit of 1 megawatt.

A Government policy objective incorporated in the Renewable Energy Act was the introduction of net metering for small capacity renewable energy generators up to 100 kW in size. Since the late 1970's Maritime Electric had allowed the connection of small generators powered by renewable energy sources to its system.
The NB Power Net Metering program provides customers with the option to connect their own environmentally sustainable generation unit to NB Power's distribution system. The program allows customers to generate their own electricity to offset their consumption, while still remaining connected to NB Power's distribution system – so they can meet their electricity demands when their generation unit cannot.
