If your company has ambitious sustainability goals or is looking to stabilize or cut down energy costs, you're likely considering a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

A power purchase agreement allows a business to receive stable and often lower-cost renewable electricity with no upfront costs (source: energy.gov).

In this video interview, Station A's Richard Ling interviews Dan Holloway, VP of Origination & Acquisitions at Sustainable Capital Finance to unpack all the considerations clean energy buyers should take into account when looking at PPAs and other solar financing options.  Dan has helped finance over 150 megawatts of commercial and industrial solar projects with his team at SCF.
