The CEPP provides financial grants to community groups who are developing renewable energy projects in Ontario. These grants provide funding to community groups to assist with the "soft" or developmental costs associated with new renewable energy projects. This will help communities in Ontario, including farmers, co-ops and non-profit organizations bring green energy projects to life.
Community groups may be eligible to receive up to $200,000 for costs associated with project development. Eligible costs include site investigation and control, resource assessment, business and financial planning, engineering studies, project management and studies associated with the Renewable Energy Approval or other required approvals.
