The government announced it is expanding its net energy metering rebate program by another year and $2 million on Monday.

Ministry of Environment spokesperson Jared Ward says it's to make it easier for people to create their own environmentally friendly energy, such as solar panels and wind turbines.

"It's to give people more chances to apply to the program and install some small-scale renewable energy systems," said Ward.

The new deadline is March 30, 2012.
