Frequently Asked Questions?

What costs will I have to outlay initially?

There will be $0 up front capital costs.

What is a PPA?

‘Power Purchase Agreement’ PPA Direct will sell (and you agree to buy) as much of the Solar Power that is generated and used by this system for an agreed rate for the life of the contract, typically 20 years. PPA Direct will pay for, install and maintain the Solar PV system on your property.

Can I buy the system?

The sort answer is yes. You can purchase it outright the same way you buy out a mobile phone contract.

How do we make money?

PPA Direct make a return on our investment over the duration of the agreement. We bill monthly for the green energy provided by the solar system. We make money the same way you save money. As we provide a third-party bill system. You can be rest assured the information coming through is independent and unbiased.

What happens if the installation goes offline?

Solar systems very rarely go offline and normally only because of a power surge or tripped circuit breaker. Full monitoring equipment is installed. It is in the best

interest of PPA Direct and the customer to ensure the system is operational always. As mentioned we have an independent billing / monitoring system so if the system doesn’t produce we are alerted and remedy any issues.

What kind of warranty does PPA Direct offer?
  • PPA Direct provide full maintenance and support for the life of the contract.
  • When ownership of the system reverts to the customer – the system will be in full working condition (normal wear & tear expected)
Who pays for the insurance on the solar system?

PPA Direct pays for all insurance related to the solar system including public liability.

What happens to the solar electricity on public holidays and weekends?

PPA Direct sizes solar systems to ensure you are using as much of the green energy produced as possible. Excess green energy produced will simply flow onto the grid. This excess electricity is owned by PPA Direct.

What happens with my current electricity provider / retailer?

Nothing. You will simply continue with them for energy sourced from the grid, and have an agreement with PPA Direct for green electricity. If you get offered a better deal for grid energy from another retailer, you are free to swap to that retailer for grid sourced energy.

All we need is 12 months of electrical data to provide a proposal for your site. There is no capital outlay for the solar system and you will have immediate operation budget savings.
