EPA Webinar on Solar Power Purchase Agreements, July 28, 2009 | CT Environmental Headlines: On Tuesday, July 28, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Green Power Partnership will host a Webinar on solar power purchase agreements (SPPA). A SPPA is a financial arrangement in which a third-party developer owns, operates, and maintains a photovoltaic system and a host customer (e.g., a business, municipal government, or university) agrees to site the system on its roof or elsewhere on its property and purchase the system’s electric output for a pre-determined period. Participants will learn:

– How SPPAs can overcome many of the traditional barriers to solar
– The benefits and challenges of an SPPA to the host customer;
– The SPPA model’s impact on the solar market;
– Who is doing SPPAs and why;
– Ideal host customer characteristics;
– How solar renewable energy certificates (SRECs) ownership affects a
host customer’s carbon footprint and its ability to make environmental
claims; and
– The steps necessary for a successful SPPA.

Presenters will be:

– James Critchfield, U.S. EPA
– TBD, SunEdison
– Mark Buckley, Vice President of Environmental Affairs, Staples
