A Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a long-term contract under which a business agrees to purchase electricity directly from an energy generator. These structured agreements provide financial certainty for the utility companies and the developers, removing a significant roadblock to financing and building new renewable facilities.

At a time when sustainability and environmental issues are coming to the fore, PPAs are therefore helping to deliver more renewable energy on the grid. A Corporate PPA with a financially strong counterparty is an essential component for achieving a bankable project.
