In an effort to reduce solar soft costs and assist local governments and other public entities seeking to install and finance rooftop solar systems, IREC developed a comprehensive toolkit on retail solar power purchase agreements (PPAs), sometimes referred to as solar service agreements. With this new resource, IREC seeks to help overcome the common challenges and costs associated with PPAs by providing a full suite of legal resources and related documents in a highly user-friendly format.
The Solar Power Purchase Agreement Toolkit is a project of IREC, as part of the Solar Outreach Partnership, in coordination with ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA and with support from the US Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative.
