South Dundas council passed a resolution at the April 16 council meeting to provide blanket support for any rooftop solar project through the FIT program within the municipality.
Council had staff draft the resolution for the sake of efficiency.
Every application was coming to council individually, with council taking the time to discuss and vote on each project, with the same outcome.
With the blanket resolution, the applications can now be handled at the staff level.
“This resolution’s sole purpose is to enable participants in the FIT program to receive priority points under the FIT program and may not be used for the purpose of any other form of municipal approval in relation to the application or projects or any other purpose,” said Donald Lewis, South Dundas manager of planning and enforcement, in his report to council.
