Power Purchase Agreements

Many solar energy projects for businesses and individuals are made possible by the Federal Investment Tax Credit, which currently stands at 26% of a project's total cost through the end of 2020. For entities that are unable to take advantage of this major tax incentive, there is a unique financing arrangement called a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Join us on Thursday, September 24 at noon Central as Simpleray's President Tyler Anderson and Director of Sales Lewis Butler discuss how this unique arrangement can make solar more accessible to organizations like local governments, public schools, places of worship, and many more.
