Biomass is one of the oldest forms of energy that is used by humans. The use of biological material for heating or cooking is one of the initial uses of biomass energy that exist even today.

The following are some of the Pros and Cons of a Solar PPA for a Host Customer:

Pros Cons
Predictable Pricing Paying two separate electricity bills if the PV system does not meet the load 100%
Upfront capital cost not needed Complex negotiations and possible higher transaction costs than purchasing a PV system outright
Projects can bring in cash flow from the first day Limited ability to make changes to the site location as it may affect the performance of the PV system
No system performance or operating risk If property becomes reassessed, the property taxes may go up
Potential reduction in the carbon footprint
Possibility to increase property's value
