Our new suite of Power Purchase Agreements will power your business with a variety of options and flexibility to achieve a cleaner and cheaper power! A win-win for both the supplier and the consumer.
The Horan & Bird | Juice Capital PPA Suite of Flexible Energy Plan Solutions
Horan & Bird and our partner Juice Capital have reinvented how you can achieve savings and NetZero Energy through a suite of Power Purchase Agreements. It’s time to ask about JuicePower.
Read on to find out which PPA solution is right for you.
No Capital Expenditure: Let us install, monitor and maintain the solar system, through our cheaper energy. The cost is 50% lower than the grid!
I don’t want a 15-year term: That’s alright. Let’s create a volume-based contract that gives you more flexibility in terms of energy volume. Use it as much or as little as you like.
I don’t own the building: We’ll coordinate with your Landlord and create a deal that works for both of you. We’ll make sure that there are no risks taken within the contract.
Short term contracts: You’re only on a 3-year lease? That’s ok, let’s lock that in and I will sort the rest out with your landlord.
Fair Contract Guarantee: What if the grid rates drop or FIT changes? You will always pay cheaper than the grid.
What if I use more or less power?: All good, our Fair Contract Guarantee makes sure that the odds are in your favour.
I want one bill: we did it, we can now sell you grid power as well as solar power on one bill.
I just want cheaper power: Our grid rates start at 18.5c and our PPA rates start at 11.9c, this allows you to save money. What do you need to do? Just give us the roof. We’ll take care of the rest of it.
Our business wants to work towards being NetZero but it all costs money: If you join us in the journey of using the PPAs and cleaner energy, you’ll see that it’s not as costly as you think
What is a PPA?
Put simply, a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is the best way to achieve savings and renewable energy without using capital. Horan & Bird and Juice Capital cover all the costs of the solar equipment and installation on your property. Though the solar panel system is located on your property, we have ownership of it and we’ll take care of all the necessary maintenance for you. Your business will receive stable and low-cost renewable electricity with no upfront cost.
Advantages of PPAs
Advantage 1: Rooftop solar electricity has the rather marvellous advantage of generating energy right where it is being consumed.
Advantage 2: You don’t have to pay network charges, which typically make up 35% – 50% of grid-based electricity.
Advantage 3: You don’t need to pay anything upfront and you don’t have to monitor or maintain the system. It’s basically GOING SOLAR AND PAYING LESS FOR ELECTRICITY.
Advantage 4: We remove the headaches. No need to put in any work; extensively research providers or installers; and no need for a loan to pay for it, we take care of it all.
Advantage 5: You are still connected to the grid, so even if the sun isn’t shining, you can sit back and relax knowing that you will always have power PLUS the benefit of using cheaper solar power for much of the day.
You are essentially allowing a solar generation company to install solar panels on your rooftop for free. The electricity generated by these panels will be sold back to you at cheaper rates than traditional retailers offer you. You also won’t have to leave your current power supplier, so you can still tap into traditional grid power at times of shortfall. Because the energy is generated on-site, it is not subject to the expensive network tariffs distribution companies charge to transmit power from point A to point B. Ownership of the solar power system transfers to you once the period or volume of energy specified in the agreement expires and we’ll still be there to support you throughout your NetZero journey.
The Bottom Line
This is a risk-free, 100% cash flow-positive investment. We will also maintain and monitor the solar energy system to make sure that it’s always in peak condition.
Is a JuicePower PPA right for you?
When it comes down to it, whether or not a Juice Power PPA is the right option for you depends on your preferences, financial and business goals. We will help design the right energy solution for your circumstances.
