What is a PPA?

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a long-term contract under which a business agrees to purchase electricity directly from a renewable energy generator. Power Purchase Agreements provide financial certainty to you and the project developer, which removes a significant roadblock to building new renewable facilities. PPAs therefore help to deliver more renewable energy, saving CO2. Your company can make the difference and shape the renewable future. Contact us and we will offer you the best, tailored solution for your company – for a sustainable long-term partnership!
