Competitive solar energy through power purchase agreements (PPA)

Clean Energy,Projects,Sustainability — The meeco Group on November 1, 2018 at 14:02

meeco provides clean power investment without any upfront costs

Companies and private consumers in many regions worldwide have to cope with an unstable or highly expensive energy supply due to the unreliability of the grid or even the total absence of such a power supply. This involves, especially for companies and industries, a heavy disadvantage in terms of competitiveness on the global market. Paused production lines in manufacturing industries, interrupted cold chains in food factories or electrical breakdowns in office buildings are just a few examples how power cuts can cause substantial losses for the commercial sector and constitute a serious threat to their commercial success accordingly. Many companies rely on a diesel-based energy supply and suffer from high and unpredictable fuel and maintenance costs. Utilising solar (photovoltaic) technology is much more eco-friendly and cost-effective. The contractual framework of a power purchase agreement (PPA) offers all advantages of clean energy to long term predictable low prices with limited or no upfront capital expenditure (CAPEX) costs for the company.
