Assessment Act R.S.O. 1990, CHAPTER A.31

Property assessable and taxable, exemptions

microFIT

3. (1) All real property in Ontario is liable to assessment and taxation, subject to the following exemptions from taxation:

18. All machinery and equipment including the foundations on which they rest to the extent and in the proportion used for producing electric power but not including any buildings, structures, structural facilities or fixtures used in connection therewith.

It is important to note that this exemption applies only for electricity being provided to the general public. For personal use (i.e., off-grid production), different rules will apply.

Large Land-based Installations

On the other hand, large land-based installations (FIT-sized) may trigger a re-classification of the municipal tax rate, because the land that electricity generating facilities are built on is considered to be “industrial” land, and industrial land is assessed at a higher rate than most other kinds of land.
