PPAs for new and existing generation projects

New generation projects

If you are developing a new renewable generation project, selling your power is just one of many things you have to think about - particularly if energy isn't your core business. A partner that knows the market can make this process easier to navigate and help you get the best possible deal and service.

Our experienced team will assist you from the planning stages right through to when you start generating, providing the support you need to secure your revenue stream.

  • Choose a fixed or flexible Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to suit you requirements
  • Secure competitive prices from SmartestEnergy, the leading purchaser of independent renewable generation
  • Get your project connected to the grid quickly with our dedicated and experienced team
  • Receive your power payments on time every month backed with dedicated customer service
  • Know your power is going to a sustainably-focused organisation from the supply-side of our business

Championing independent renewables

We believe independent renewable generators are a key part of the shift to a low carbon energy landscape and we work hard to represent the voice of our customers. Our Energy Entrepreneurs Report, published annually, recently highlighted that the sector is continuing to grow, with 13.8GW renewable generation capacity recorded in in 2017 (up 8.2% on 2016) - enough to power 8.38 million households. 

We also supply renewable electricity to large organisations and we see demand growing rapidly as sustainability moves up the agenda, which is great news for the renewable generators we work with.
