Revel Energy Solar PPA for Commercial Businesses
Power Purchase Agreements Protect Businesses From Rising Electricity Bills
Power Purchase Agreements or PPA’s are a great method that California businesses are using to hedge against rising electricity prices while reducing carbon footprint without requiring any capital investment.
The solar PPA has become key to how many commercial businesses are accessing sustainable energy solutions like commercial solar. BloombergNEF recently reported in the 2023 sustainable energy in America factbook that financing options like traditional PPAs and virtual PPAs are surging in popularity, as the creative financing option allows businesses to pay for and install solar panels with their electricity bill savings.
This article is summed up in our PPA explainer video available here.
What is a Power Purchase Agreement?
A power purchase agreement (PPA) for commercial solar is a partnership in which a trusted partner like Revel Energy would install, own, and operate a system on a business’s property. That business agrees to purchase the electricity generated by the system at a fixed and predetermined escalation rate over the term of the PPA.
Instead of a capital expenditure to own a commercial solar system, the PPA allows businesses to use their already budgeted operational expenses to pay for their own sustainable energy source – reducing demand from their utility provider and keeping cash in the business.
This agreement protects businesses from a certain future of rising electricity costs by locking in a predetermined escalation rate, using solar generation to offset electricity bills to provide financial and operational flexibility. For example, since in the last three years electricity costs have risen by 30% to 50%, if a business facing these increases had a PPA to generate their own electricity, their fixed PPA escalation rate would increase by a minor amount instead.

Access Sustainable Savings Without Capital Investment with a Solar PPA
Solar power purchase agreements are ideal for any agricultural, commercial and industrial business that has received increasing electricity bills, but doesn’t have the capital to invest in solar for their property.
Owners, operators and portfolio real estate firms like REITs with commercial and industrial buildings with increasing monthly electricity bills could be prime candidates to use a PPA to reduce their electricity bills, paid for by those operational expense savings. If your building meets the minimum requirements, Revel Energy will develop and install a custom commercial solar solution for that business while ensuring the cost of the system is covered by an accredited third party financier.
Throughout the 25-year life of the system, potential electricity costs are drastically reduced even as energy rates rise, the PPA financing rate only increases by a fixed rate each year. As we revealed in a case study for IOU customers, electricity rates have risen 30-50% over the last 3 years, even rising costs for municipal utility providers. Solar PPA solutions offer the benefit of only increasing by a nominal amount each year. Power purchase agreements utilize a businesses operational expense savings from electricity bills to pay for the energy generated by an on-site commercial solar system.
