Everyone wants renewable energy and to reduce carbon emissions, but historically a number of factors have kept organizations from building their own wind farms or solar fields. High upfront costs, technical expertise and long term price volatility just to name have kept companies, schools and governments from more readily adopting large scale renewables.
All that is changing, with new market tools helping solve those problems and expand renewable energy. Power Purchase Agreements are fast becoming the preferred method for securing renewable power while limiting upfront costs and risks.
During the webinar we will hear from two very different organizations who are both utilizing PPAs to maximize green power purchasing.
Join Sam Arons, Energy Program Manager from Google Inc., who is responsible for overseeing the PPA program and coordinating deals, and
Chris O’Brien, Director of Sustainability at American University where they recently finished a large solar PPA project.
