In simple terms, customers with a PPA pay for an amount of renewable energy that the solar or wind farm put into the grid, and the equivalent amount consumed by the customer will be recognised as having zero emissions.

What’s involved?

Re-sell what you don’t use

Renewable generation is offset against your use. When you use more than what is generated in an interval, Flow Power will source additional electricity at wholesale market rates or at an agreed fixed rate. Similarly, if you use less, you can sell the excess renewable generation back to the grid at an agreed price or at the wholesale market rate – the amount will be credited on your bill.

Part of your wholesale strategy

Buying energy wholesale frequently outperforms fixed retail contract prices. It also provides greater transparency on spend, as well as increased flexibility – you can adjust your strategy at any time to account for seasonal demands, onsite generation and other changes in consumption requirements. Signing up to a PPA will secure cost certainty for your business for up to 10 years.
