Green Tech Media called 2018 “the year of the Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).” In that case, the question becomes “what took so long and where do we go from here?”
Manufacturers have always sought ways to control power consumption and cost. And today, they are cognizant of the ethical, social, financial, and environmental implications of their power usage.
In that case, the question becomes “do Corporate PPAs allow companies to do both?”
