Unlike the microFIT Program Advisory Panel, Terms of Reference, September 2010, the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) wants to include a vast number of members that still excludes the Ministry of Health, and any public anti-wind organization, in both the FIT Advisory Panel and the “Community Energy Advisory Panel” – the latter panel the ones to review a so called “Community Energy Plan” as announced by the Liberals. Note also that the developers, through this organization, would be at every panel level of the program.

OSEA recommendations to Minister of Energy on Small FIT process
Interesting to note are the last paragraphs in the power authority memo and the OSEA recommendations for gagging everyone: “All members of the Advisory Panel and their designated alternates must keep the proceedings of the panel in strict confidence and will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Any violation of the non-disclosure agreement would be treated as a serious matter and would, at a minimum, result in immediate dismissal from the Advisory Panel.”
