How does the PPA Saving calculator work?

how does the solar calculator work

The PPA savings calculator works by taking your monthly electricity bills and entering them into the calculator.

It then calculates how much you can save over 10 years by investing in a solar power purchase agreement (PPA). It takes into account the current electricity costs and how much you pay per kWh.

The calculator does not calculate the cost of installation as power purchase agreements have no installation costs or maintenance costs as this is paid for by the solar producer.

On average commercial companies in the UK can save around 30% on electricity bills by switching to a more greener energy supply like a solar PPA.

What is a Solar Power purchase agreement (PPA)?

What is a Solar Power purchase agreement (PPA)?

A power purchase agreement is a type of contract between an energy producer (Solar) and a customer(in this case a business).

It allows the business to purchase energy generated by the solar panel system over a period of time and at an agreed-upon rate.

This type of agreement is often used in commercial settings where the customer can benefit from savings on electricity costs and be more energy-efficient.

By using the PPA calculator, business owners can get an accurate estimate of how much they will save by switching to a solar power purchase agreement.

The PPA Savings calculator is a great tool for anyone looking to get an accurate assessment of their financial savings from switching to solar energy. Start calculating your savings today!

 

Example of solar PPA savings for a business

example of a solar power purchase agreement

Here is an example of a clothing warehouse that takes out a solar PPA (power purchase agreement), here are their savings.

Before the PPA:

Assume the clothing warehouse uses 100,000 kWh of electricity per year
The cost of electricity is £0.15 per kWh, so the warehouse spends £15,000 per year on electricity

After the PPA:

The clothing warehouse signs a Solar PPA with a third-party provider, the solar system will be installed on the roof of the premises
The third-party provider installs and maintains a solar power system on the warehouse’s property
The clothing warehouse agrees to purchase the electricity generated by the system at a discounted rate of £0.10 per kWh
With the discounted rate, the warehouse’s electricity cost drops to £10,000 per year
The warehouse is able to reduce its electricity costs by 33%, saving £5,000 per year

Savings Over 1 Month

Before the PPA, the clothing warehouse would have spent £1,250 on electricity (£15,000 per year / 12 months = £1,250 per month)

After the PPA, the clothing warehouse would have spent £833 on electricity (£10,000 per year / 12 months = £833 per month)

Over 1 month, the clothing warehouse would save £417 in electricity costs by signing a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with a third-party provider.

 

Savings Over 1 Year

Before the PPA, the clothing warehouse would have spent £15,000 on electricity
After the PPA, the clothing warehouse would have spent £10,000 on electricity
Over 1 year, the clothing warehouse would save £5,000 in electricity costs by signing a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with a third-party provider.

Savings Over 10 Years

Before the PPA, the clothing warehouse would have spent £150,000 on electricity (£15,000 per year for 10 years)
After the PPA, the clothing warehouse would have spent £100,000 on electricity (£10,000 per year for 10 years)
