How does a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) work?
This financing is designed specifically for solar projects to remove the upfront investment and to increase access to financing for energy user who cannot use solar investment tax credits. A PPA provides a known long-term electricity price hedge against future electricity price increases. PPA offers easy access to no money down, fixed-payment, and long-term (up to 25 years) financing and higher savings while leaving the complexity of monetizing tax benefits, operating and maintaining the solar system to highly qualified third parties.
How does an Operating Lease / Energy Services Agreement (ESA) work?
YAn ESA is a services contract between a power off-taker and the owner/service-provider of Solar Energy electrical generating equipment where the off-taker agrees to pay a fixed payment for energy services delivered by the electrical generating equipment at a competitive price. BlueFlame Solar ESA require no upfront capital from power off-taker and enables payments to be assessed and paid monthly. The maintenance of the system is the obligation of the power off-taker.
How does a Capital Lease work?
A capital lease works similarly to a loan. With this option, the business will take ownership of the solar system and the tax benefits that come with it. It is best for those who can fully take advantage of the tax benefits.
