Annual Energy Cost Escalation

Schools-2009 EAc2: On-Site Renewable Energy

If a project includes a 3rd party PV system, and the electric rate increases each year after the 1st year (under the PPA), what rate must we use in calculating the dollar savings?

If the RECs are sold (solar RECs) is there a requirement that the RECs HAVE to be solar, or can they be any kind of RECs (wind)? I am asking, because there seems to be a large difference in...

Is there any way to involve a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) or similar funding mechanism for EAc2? The language in the guide is not specific, as they mention a "energy system owner". If so, how...

Tristan Roberts HPDC Technical Director Quill Nook Farm LEEDuser Expert 11454 thumbs up March 1, 2011- 9:40 pm Yes, but there is a special clause that you need to buy additonal RECs.
