Abstract

Taxation policy and incentives play a vital role in wind-based distributed generation projects viability. In this paper, a thorough techno-economical evaluation of wind-based distributed generation projects is conducted to investigate the effect of taxes and incentives in the economic viability of investments in this sector. This paper considers the effects of Provincial income taxes, capital cost allowance (CCA), property taxes, and wind power production Federal incentives. Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) for different scenarios were used to assess the project's viability considering Ontario Standard Offer Program (SOP) for wind power.
