• On-Site Solar



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.


  • 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


Solar PPA sourcing & commercial transaction support:

We help companies navigate the complex PPA and RFP process, and can help you select and negotiate contracts for self-funded projects we offer vendor qualification for EPCs, providing our industry knowledge and expertise at every step.


A PPA is a contract to purchase energy between a renewable energy developer and an energy user. The energy user pays nothing up-front and purchases the power produced from the solar system at a discount. It typically takes about six months to develop an entire project.

  • Case study: Zero-cost solar on a Tongzhou warehouse

    Seeder represented Singapore-based real estate investment firm Redwood Group to identify and negotiate a PPA a project financier. The project was completed in fall 2015.
