Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPAs)

Traditionally, businesses buy their electricity from licensed electricity suppliers – but a corporate power purchase agreement (CPPA) offers an alternative.

It’s a long-term contract under which an organisation agrees to buy some of its electricity directly from a grid-connected renewable energy generator, such as a solar or wind farm.

CPPAs help to fund renewable energy projects, as they give generators a long term revenue stream for the energy they produce.
