Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)
For public sector partners, the up-front investment required to design and install a solar system has historically been cost prohibitive. But Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) have changed that dynamic significantly, and are an essential tool in ensuring that schools, local governments, and non-profits have the ability to save money by embracing solar.
How Schools are Using PPAs to Save Money
Middlesex County Public Schools is a national leader in providing educational opportunities while being good stewards of community resources. Working closely with Sun Tribe, Middlesex County Public Schools installed the first ground-mounted solar system at any school in Virginia and will be the first school district in the Commonwealth to have its schools 100 percent powered by on-site renewable energy. All while saving $4.74 million for taxpayers.
