Not necessarily, some contracts are designed to be complimentary to this common situation. It takes a little more work but is well worth the reward. The tenant receives cheap energy and the Landlord improves the property, usually at no cost at all – Win Win!
The contract is for 20 years.
There are various options in this respect, ranging from novating the system to the next occupier, buying out of the contract and even taking the system with you!
In the unlikely event installation should cause a problem then of course that is all fully insured and guaranteed.
General roof maintenance is incorporated into the contract and is allowed for. It could even be combined with the installation itself to save you more money!
It is in everyone’s interest that the system is in top condition and therefore general maintenance will be needed, however this would be co-ordinated with yourselves and will not impact your work schedule. There isn’t any cost to yourselves for this during a PPA contract.
As you would expect it your building insurer should be informed, however we have yet to come across any adverse responses to this. The system equipment, public liability and any damage that could be caused by the system is all fully insured as part of a PPA agreement.
Unfortunately not, the system will be sized to ensure you can consume as much as possible and overall savings of 40% are achievable, but you will still need your normal supply as well. Sorry!
A lot of electricity costs are down to the distribution and transmission of electricity. By generating your own right where you need it on site this reduces those losses and expenses. The equipment and installation is still relatively expensive which is why the Governments Feed in Tariff (FIT) pays an incentive for every KWh of green energy produced over the life of the system. The investor receives this as well as your low PPA price which means they get a return over the life of the system.
Yes you can and in that case you would be able to receive the FIT and export rates as well as consuming the energy for ‘free’ for maximum energy savings. Installing requires quite a significant investment however and you will then be responsible for its maintenance and operation, nevertheless this quite often an option for a business in the right position. We can demonstrate to you both options easily.
