Energy Managers: No Budget? No Problem with a Solar PPA

Have you ever struggled with your budget? Are there projects you wish to complete but think you can't afford? If you struggle with your budget as an energy or sustainability manager, Clean Footprint has the answer for you: a solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)!

With a Solar PPA, there is no money out of pocket. You will not have to pay for an entire solar array. Solar can be very expensive if you decide to buy it and you would also assume all the responsibility. With a Solar PPA, Clean Footprint absorbs all the costs and responsibilities. Your company simply pays for electricity at a stabilized lower rate for the next 25 years. A Solar PPA is the only financing method that begins saving you money immediately with zero out of pocket. Through a Solar PPA, Clean Footprint provides your company with solar powered electricity at a savings compared to what you currently pay. Savings vary on an individual basis but you should expect to save 15-20% off your current electric bill.

So here is an idea. Since Clean Footprint’s Solar PPA saves you money from the very beginning, the money saved can be put towards other projects that need your attention. Take this example into consideration:

The energy manager at ABC Company wants to install solar. He has gained consensus among his coworkers and now needs to find a viable space to install his solar array. The only option is on the roof of his warehouse, but the roof is old and in need of repairs before it can support solar. The energy manager does not have the necessary budget to allow him to make those repairs. However, after talking with Clean Footprint about the Solar PPA, the energy manager realizes that he will save more than enough money by installing solar. The money he will save can be used to repair his roof and make it sturdy enough to install a solar array on it.

Like this energy manager, you can save enough money with a Solar PPA to allow you to update your buildings, hire additional staff, or even undertake an energy efficiency project. If your budget could use a little help, consider going solar with Clean Footprint’s Solar PPA. To get started, click to receive your Free Solar Quote!
