Vocabulary tip: NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) are necessary legal documents to ensure that information exchanged between the parties remains confidential. Power Purchase Agreement (AAE) and Implementation Agreement, the international law firm (issued in 2006) for Pakistan`s Private Power and Infrastructure Board – Standard Electricity Docking Contract and Fossil Fuel Implementation Agreement developed by the International Law Firm for Pakistan`s Private Power and Infrastructure Board, as well as a Pricing Schedule model for the PPP and the directive that established the general framework that led to the development of the three standard policy forms 2002 (PDF). Electricity producers enter into AAEs either bilaterally with a consumer company (« Corporate PPA ») or with an electricity distributor who purchases the electricity generated (« Merchant PPA »). The electricity distributor can continue to supply electricity to an electricity consumer (transform it again into a « corporate PPA ») or to negotiate electricity on an electricity exchange. Many international groups are already buying shares in their electricity consumption via AAAs or have announced their intention to do so more frequently (see there100.org/re100). They use AAEs to obtain stable and predictable electricity prices. AAEs are an effective way to reduce the risk of electricity prices, particularly for operators of high-investment and low-cost facilities (such as photovoltaic and wind power plants). Since electricity payments are already insured to some extent, facility managers and financial banks may be more confident that revenues from the sale of electricity will effectively cover investment costs. This makes the project more cost-effective in the long run. The solar service provider is the project coordinator and organizes the financing, design, approval and construction of the system. The solar service provider buys the solar modules for the project of a PV manufacturer that has ensertified warranties for installation equipment. The benefits of an electricity purchase contract include long-term price security, the ability to finance investments in new power generation capacity, or the reduction of risks associated with electricity sales and purchases.
