The customer undertakes O&M directly or through a maintenance contract with TATA POWER SOLAR / EKAM ENERGY.


Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for commercial solar rooftops

Solar power purchase agreement (PPA) is a financial agreement where TATA POWER SOLAR/ EKAM ENERGY arranges for the design, permitting, financing and installation of a solar energy system on a customer’s property at little to no cost. TATA POWER SOLAR/ EKAM ENERGY sells the power generated to the customer at a fixed rate that is typically lower than the local utility’s retail rate. This lower cost of electricity serves to offset the customer’s purchase of electricity from the grid while the developer receives the income from these sales of electricity as well as any tax credits and other incentives generated from the system.

PPAs typically range from 10 to 25 years and the developer remains responsible for the operation and maintenance of the system for the duration of the agreement. At the end of the PPA contract term, a customer may be able to extend the PPA, have the developer remove the system or choose to buy the solar energy system from the developer
