Solar PV

Commercial and Industrial

We have installed solar PV arrays for commercial and industrial customers, some of the UK’s largest house builders and many schools, colleges and universities. We retrofit solar PV as well as install on new builds and can incorporate energy storage systems and EV charging units.

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

EcoBuild Have Access To A Variety Of Funders To Offer PPAs.

Commercial electricity tariffs are continuing to increase by between 5% and 6% each year. EcoBiuild can now offer power purchase agreements (PPA) of solar power for our commercial customers. The benefit, through a Power Purchase Agreement is reduced electricity rates and to hedge against future electricity price rises without having to pay the capital cost of installing and maintaining a solar PV system.

PPAs can be an excellent way of fixing future electricity costs, with no capital expenditure by the customer. PPAs are financed through a third party who owns the solar PV system and signs a roof lease with the building/land owner, who then commits to buy the solar electricity at an agreed price for a fixed term between 10 years and 20 years. At the end of the term, ownership of the solar PV system is transferred to the building owner.

The SEG ensures homeowners with solar panels are paid for any excess renewable energy that is exported back to the National Grid.

EcoBuild can now offer power purchase agreements (PPA) for solar power systems with our partners.

What is a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)?

Instead of purchasing a solar installation outright, a PPA allows a business to purchase solar energy at an agreed price for a fixed term of between 10 years and 25 years.

The PPA price for the solar energy is typically significantly lower than current electricity retail tariffs and at the end of the PPA term, ownership of the PV system is transferred to the customer.

Benefits of PPA:

  1. No upfront cost to the customer
  2. Long-term electricity price certainty
  3. Flexible lease options available
  4. Zero capex and O&M costs
  5. No management burden
  6. Significant energy savings from day one
  7. Option to buy the system at any point

Flexible Funding Options:

EcoBuild can offer flexible PPA options, both in terms of PPA length and pricing structure:

  • Inflation-linked pricing
  • Fixed price
  • Discount-to-market

Customers have the option to acquire energy on a pay-as-you-go basis, ensuring they only pay for the exact amount they consume and avoiding any unnecessary charges for unused energy.

How to get started

Once half-hourly electricity data is sent to EcoBuild, we will analyse the consumption data considering factors such as consumption profiles, system size, and lease duration to determine an appropriate PPA price.

Our dedicated teams at EcoBuild and Partners then work with the customer to customise a PPA solution that perfectly aligns with their business objectives and commitment to sustainability.
