Saving with Solar: Understanding Retail Solar Power Purchase Agreements WEBINAR

  • 15 Mar 2012

  • Online
In 2010, PPAs and leases made up around 43% of all PV installations (by capacity) in the non-residential sector and approximately 17% of capacity additions in the residential sector.

This webinar will examine the emerging prevalence of PPAs and discuss the future of PPAs and other similar ownership structures. PPA experts will discuss how retail PPAs work, how municipalities have taken advantage of the PPA model to lock-in their energy costs, and discuss innovative PPA ownership models.


Moderators:
Amy Heinemann, NC Solar Center/DSIRE & Chad Laurent, Meister Consultants Group, Inc.

Speakers:
  • Bob Bois, Environmental Compliance Manager, Town of Natick, Massachusetts
Mr. Bois will discuss the town’s experience with installing solar on several local government buildings using retail PPA’s. He will focus in particular on obstacles encountered and how they were overcome.

  • Stephen Pearlman, Inglesino, Pearlman, Wyciskala & Taylor, LLC , Morris County, New Jersey
Mr.  Pearlman will describe a new variation on the traditional retail PPA model where a local government acts as both a purchaser of power and a vehicle for accessing low-cost development capital. He will also discuss his implementation experiences with this “Bond-PPA Hybrid” model.
