A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a contract between two parties, one which generates electricity (the seller) and one which is looking to purchase electricity (the buyer), generally a power utility company, trades power that is produced for the market by an Independent Power Producer (IPP). A PPA is the principal agreement that defines revenue between an electricity seller and an electricity buyer. A PPA or IPP agreement is usually a long-term contract for a concession project for an IPP or a Build-Own-Transfer (BOT). A PPA can therefore be viewed as an instrument to facilitate the sale and purchase of electrical power into the local market.
ADVANTAGES OF A POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENT
Guarantees for quantities and price: projected revenues of a project can be uncertain and so some guarantees as to the quantities purchased and price paid are required to give the project a viable protection from cheaper or subsidised domestic or international competition. For example, when a neighbouring power plant is producing cheaper power.
Certainty of revenue: for example, a government will want to understand how much it will be paying for the power and they will also want the first call on the power when necessary. A utility company wishes to secure the power supply.
Reduce CAPEX: organisations with a commercial, industrial, institutional or governmental background can find ways to monetise operations that traditionally have been cost centres.
Producing and providing from one source: the IPP is the owner of the power project and not only generates but also provides power to the buyer.
