Financial Considerations for Power Purchase Agreements:
How to Get a PPA Approved by Your CFO
LevelTen Energy recently surveyed our network of partners, which includes over 30 of the world’s leading energy advisors and consulting firms, as well as retail electricity providers, to understand the top barriers that their clients face when it comes to entering into power purchase agreements (PPAs). The majority, 56%, said the top barrier is getting internal buy-in from the C-suite.
LevelTen’s partners represent a wide range of clients, from major corporations, to universities, hospital networks, city governments, and more. Most of those organizations don’t have previous experience with PPAs, which means getting a PPA approved requires a lot of education for internal stakeholders.
One of those key stakeholders is typically the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), who will take a close look at the financial implications of this long-term agreement. To help PPA champions have this conversation with their CFO, LevelTen produced a downloadable guide that covers key financial considerations for PPAs.
