Power Purchase Agreements

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are essentially a contract between two parties, one who generates electricity (the developer) and one who is looking to purchase electricity (the end-user). At Mitie Energy we have extensive experience of setting up and managing PPAs and making these agreements simple and beneficial for both parties.

PPAs for end-users

A PPA creates long-term price certainty reducing risk and protects you against potential higher energy prices in the future. It also helps stimulate additional renewable energy supply in the UK. With mechanisms that allow either fixed or floating prices, the energy secured via a PPA can be on favourable commercial terms to both developers and end-users.

Our PPA procurement services can help you with any or every stage of the process, from identifying your requirements, through to securing your agreement and then managing the performance of the contract over time. If you're considering buying your energy using a PPA we’ll be on hand to help you through the process.

What we'll do for you:

  • Work with you to create a plan to help you secure the right PPA for your business
  • Work with you to identify the right source of energy whether that be wind, hydro, solar or Combined Heat and Power
  • Create a full project schedule including delivery of electricity and all details about payment
  • Manage the performance of the PPA throughout its contract
