Power Purchasing Agreements

Commercial Solar PPA

Secure your company’s energy costs with long term hedging against future energy price volatility with a Todae Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). A Solar PPA allows you to install solar power without any upfront capital investment and simply receive a locked in electricity tariff that provides a discount on your current day grid tariffs. The lower tariff is locked in for the term (typically ranging from 10 to 20 years) and all on-going maintenance and insurance is covered by Todae Solar.

A Solar PPA means you are buying the solar electricity produced by the system, rather than buying the system itself. This means that you only pay for what the system produces – you receive a monthly electricity bill just like your normal electricity provider.

A Solar PPA is a great way to take advantage of solar without any capital whilst minimise any operational risk.

Key Benefits of a Solar Lease

Low Upfront Capital Investment

With little or no upfront costs, a solar lease will spread the cost of the system over the lifetime of the payment plan – helping to assist with potentially positive cash flow. Often, the lease costs on the system are less than the financial savings that the system generates, resulting in a cash flow positive investment potentially from day one. As energy prices increase, so do the financial benefits that the systems generates.

Reduced Dependence on Grid Electricity

As capital is no required, you are able to reduce your organisations dependence on grid electricity with a solar lease. This will help to prevent rising costs in the future and provide your business with the foundation for storage at a later date. There is no additional cost for the energy generated outside of the monthly repayment so this provides easy budgeting and forecasting.
