PPAs can significantly reduce an organization’s energy costs while meeting renewable energy and carbon reduction commitments.

PPAs are already saving organizations millions of dollars and have added more than 5,000 MW of new wind and solar to the global energy grid.

What PPAs Are

A PPA is a contract to purchase energy between a renewable energy developer and a creditworthy buyer. This long-term commitment helps finance a wind or solar energy project while simultaneously securing a reliable, affordable source of clean energy for the buyer.


First adopted by commercial, industrial, & institutional (C&I) buyers in 2008, PPAs have shown a dramatic increase in market share in the last 3 years, growing from 590 MW in total contracts in 2013 to more than 3000+ MW in 2015.

Save money. Save the environment. Here’s how they work.


How PPAs Work

PPAs allow buyers to enter into delivery contracts directly with renewable project developers, securing a long-term and predictable source of energy over the life of the PPA (10-20 years).  By hedging against the rising costs of conventional energy, companies are able to considerably reduce their energy costs while stimulating the growth of clean technologies and meeting sustainability commitments and goals.

How PPAs Help

PPAs provide a range of financial and environmental benefits.

  • Renewable Choice clients typically see net positive financial upside in the $10-$100M range.
  • PPAs enable buyers to advance their renewable energy targets, while securing domestic sources of energy production, reducing pollution, and stimulating job growth.
  • PPAs help buyers minimize conventional energy volatility risks, while contributing to a socially responsible brand attractive to stakeholders.
