Green Power Purchase
Overview of Green Power Purchase
Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) can be used to make renewable energy more accessible to residential and commercial consumers. A PPA is a legal contract between a generator and a purchaser of electricity. These agreements are important in the financing of electricity generating infrastructure, particularly concerning renewable energies. The owner of the infrastructure is able to use the PPA to get financing, given clearly defined electricity outputs and the revenues associated with them. It is often private developers that seek to develop renewable energy projects, where the electricity generated would be sold to electricity distributors, namely Eskom or Municipalities. These distributors would, in turn, sell this green electricity to willing buyers.
