Power Purchase Agreement

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a procurement option available that allows for a municipality to enjoy the benefits of a renewable energy investment without taking on the risk of the investment. The municipality commits only to purchase the electricity generated from the system, at the agreed upon rates, for the life of the agreement.

As non-tax paying entities, municipalities are not able to take advantage of tax-based incentives for renewable energy. With CHP Clean Energy as the system owner, we are able to take advantage of all incentives which are then incorporated into the rates we extend to the client.
