Take Control of Your Energy & Transmission Costs

We partner with utilities & electric coops to provide turnkey solar installations that hedge against rising energy costs, reduce transmission charges, and provide lower overall cost than your current energy mix.

Lock In Your Power Rate for the Next 25+ Years


Imagine locking in your wholesale power rate for the next three decades. It's achievable with solar power. Solar is a reliable source of energy being used by utilities and coops across the nation to save money. Utilities like yours can leverage solar as a power generating asset that you control. No money down power purchase agreements make solar a better choice for utilities than ever before. Read on to learn more.

In a PPA, Simpleray purchases, installs, and maintains your solar array while you only pay for the electricity it produces on a monthly basis, at a contracted and reduced rate. No need to worry about maintenance; we take care of everything.

With no upfront capital investment, you’ll start saving money right away. PPAs allow you to hedge against rising energy costs, giving you and your customers more cost stability. Pay less for energy than you are now & lock in your rate for 25+ years.

Power purchase agreements are a strong alternative to utility owned arrays. It simplifies the bidding process, removes the need to secure capital (we cover all installation costs), and allows us to better tailor the project maximize your long term savings.

"We selected Simpleray due to their turnkey process that provided Farmers Electric Cooperative with financing, engineering, procurement, and construction. Their unparalleled industry knowledge has made this project a big success for FEC!"
