A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) will give you a free, fully maintained solar PV system on your roof or a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) system to produce electricity and heat for 20 to 40 years, and allow you to purchase the generated electricity produced for the system between 20%-40% cheaper than your current energy supplier.
When considering renewable energy for a business, purchasing a system outright often gives you the best returns, however, raising capital for the initial outlay can be a concern.
With a PPA, your system is provided and installed at zero cost and in turn, any generated electricity you use, is then purchased from the financing partner at a pre-agreed cost that is lower than your electricity provider,locked in for life, therefore saving you money on your energy bills.
The energy produced will be discounted for the duration of the PPA contract and when the contract term is finished, the renewable system will be gifted to the landlord/owner of the property. This is usually after 20 years!
