A customer agrees to have solar panels installed on their land, typically their roof, and signs a long-term contract with the solar service provider to purchase the electricity produced. The host property can be either in possession or rented (note that solar financing in leased properties works best for guests with a long-term lease). The purchase price of the electricity produced is generally lower or slightly lower than the retail rate that the host customer would pay to his refuelling service provider. PPP rates can be set, but they often contain an annual price range of 1 to 5 percent to account for the efficiency of the system that decreases with the age of the system. increased inflation-related costs for operating, monitoring and maintaining the system; and expected increases in the prices of electricity supplied by the grid. An SPPA is a performance-based agreement, in which the host client only pays for what the system produces. The duration of most PPSS can range from six years (.dem i.e. the period until which the available tax benefits are fully realized) to 25 years. The solar service provider acts as project coordinator and organizes the financing, planning, authorization and construction of the facility. The solar service provider takes care of the solar modules for the project by a photovoltaic panel manufacturer who takes guarantees for the equipment of the installation. The draft contract contains a customer offer and contractual conditions and meets the contractual requirements of the Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer program. The contract template is of exceptional value and can save your business a lot of time and money.

Solar distributors using this contract are well positioned to be included in the Approved Solar Retailer program and obtain the right to market as an Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer. The installer designs the system, specifies the corresponding system components and can perform follow-up maintenance over the lifetime of the photovoltaic installation. To install the system, the solar service provider can deploy an in-house team of installers or have a contractual relationship with an independent installer. Once the SPPA contract is signed, a typical installation can usually be completed in three to six months. To benefit from the solar power generation of a local system to meet the Green Power Partnership`s requirements for the use of green electricity, a partner must keep the corresponding renewable energy certificates (RECs) generated by the system. For more information on solar, RECs and related claims, please see the Green-e Solar FAQs and Claims (PDF) (8 p. 42K) Exit Fact Sheet. A Solar Power Receiving Agreement (SPPA) is a financial agreement in which a third-party developer owns, operates and expects the photovoltaic (PV) installation and a guest customer agrees to install the installation on their land and source electrical power from the system from the solar service provider for a predetermined period of time. An investor provides equity financing and obtains the tax advantages of the federal state and the Land for which the system is eligible. In certain circumstances, the investor and the solar service provider may jointly form a special purpose vehicle for the project in order to act as a legal entity that receives and distributes to the investor payments from the tax benefits and the sale of the system service. . .
