WHAT IS IT?

Companies put distributed renewables onsite to directly consume the power, and sell excess power back to the grid. You can choose to have this financed by a third-party with a PPA or invest and own it yourself.

PROS & CONS

  • Favorable economics (IRR~10%, <8 yr payback)
  • Relatively easy and fast to process
  • Customer can claim clear RE consumption and additionality
  • Can only satisfy limited demand
  • PPA contract length at 20-25 years

ZERO-COST SOLAR

A Rooftop Solar PPA (called an Energy Management Contract in China) is a contract to purchase energy between a renewable energy developer and an energy user or building owner. The energy user pays nothing up-front and purchases the power produced from the solar system at a discount for a set amount of time.
