Solar Power Purchase Agreements

Empower Energy work with several renewable energy asset investors in the UK that can offer free fully maintained and installed solar pv systems.



What Is A Power Purchase Agreement ?

A Power Purchase Agreement is the perfect way to benefit from a commercial solar pv system without the installation and maintenance costs normally associated with owning a commercial solar pv system. Empower Energy work with several renewable energy asset investors in the UK that can offer a free installation and fully maintained system.

How Does It Work

The investment company generate the electricity from the system and then sell it back to the client at a reduced cost. This is typically lower than the rate the electricity company may charge. This lower electricity price serves to offset the customer's purchase of electricity from the grid. The developer receives the income from the sales of electricity as well as any other incentives generated from the system.

25 Year Agreement

PPAs typically last 25 years and the developer remains responsible for the operation and maintenance of the system for the duration of the agreement. At the end of the PPA contract term, a customer normally takes ownership of the system for a very nominal fee.

Example Savings

750kW Home Counties on a factory roof is paying 8p per kWh and saving himself £24,000 per year.

950kW in the South of the UK on a building roof is saving £48,000 in the first year and £2.5 million over the lifespan of the project

2.5MW in the South Midlands is paying 7p ands is going to use 80% of the electricity produced by the Solar and save himself millions and reduce the Carbon usage by 8,000 tonnes

A 50kW system in Birmingham is saving the client 10.5p per kWh

Is My Building Suitable For A PPA ?

There are many contributing factors to a systems’ effectiveness, such as location, angle, shading etc. By far the best way to check is to have one of our experienced commercial solar surveyors visit you personally and prepare a no obligation report and quotation. Not only will this highlight your system options, it will also show the estimated generation that you can expect from your system based on accurate details prior to installation, instead of averages and ‘best case’ figures.

Benefits Of A PPA

  • A Free Solar PV System - that is fitted by Empower Energy and funded by one of our renewable energy asset investors.
  • Guaranteed Saving On Energy Costs - The energy produced by the solar system is purchased back from the investor at a cheaper rate than conventional energy providers.
  • No Maintenance Cost - The system will be maintained and serviced by the investment company.
