  • OSEA: Whitepaper on Local Improvement Charges - Summary of Financing for Everyone... webinar
    City program which is a pilot program undertaken by the Regional Municipality to drive engagement on renewable energy and energy efficiency among residential property owners Mary Pickering noted that this strategy is a valuable lesson because residential property owners are essential to building support and awareness Solar thermal additions were met with an overwhelming amount of public support and were strongly endorsed by the local municipality A coordinated relationship between businesses the public and the municipality s governing parties resulted in a highly successful program that demonstrates the intrinsic value of local improvement charges LIC as a municipal tool which is both economical and brings society one step closer to reaching the goal set forth in OSEA s Road Map to 2020 The Three Economic Lenses for Municipal Councils to Consider It has to be a good deal for the residents They have to believe in the long term benefit to them Local economic development for industry underpins the value proposition for these programs Consider the industries skills and services of the future i e the market for solar thermal was recognized by as a critical economic growth opportunity Halifax Council It can t be subsidized by the general taxpayer but they have to benefit in some way Julian Boyle pointed out the simplicity of the turn key program for the property owner is a key to its success Developed to be as streamlined and convenient as possible the solar thermal focus of the program was determined by council ahead of time based on the payback of the technology and its appropriateness for the municipality financial environmental and social In reducing the number of options available to the property owner the choice to participate becomes less confusing Based on the evaluation the municipality would provide the owner with payment plans either up front or financed by the municipality and if agreed upon the municipality would coordinate contractors to accomplish the work Financial Notes on the Regional Municipality of Halifax s Solar City Project note the 700 300 split refers to the expected ratio of 1000 property owners that would choose financing vs lump sum payment In practice the ratio is closer to 500 500 Risk Mitigation The Solar City Project was established with a comprehensive risk mitigation strategy that gives the municipality the power to control its own investments It makes the program low risk and relatively inexpensive The Municipality has a priority lean on the property meaning that it is the first to be repaid in the event of a default on the property The cost of each project is 100 recovered by the municipality The program is not cross subsidized by taxpayers The large number of projects means that the risk associated with an individual property owner defaulting on the payments is lessened by the sheer volume of projects The capital cost of equipment is born by the municipality Because the municipality effectively owns the equipment it is transferred to the new owner in the event of the
