Examples of Our Business & Government Customers

Virtual PPAs

Virtual PPAs (VPPAs) are a contracting option for corporate entities, businesses, and governments opting for fixed income streams, significant scale, and additionality.

Companies and municipalities with smaller electricity demand are able to aggregate their buying power to take advantage of the economies of scale of large solar and wind projects under VPPAs.

Community Solar

Clearway is one of the largest developers, owners, and operators of community solar in the United States with projects open to business and government customers in markets such as Massachusetts, Minnesota, Illinois and Rhode Island.

Benefits to subscribing to a local community solar farm include: No upfront cost, no interruption to facilities/business operations from equipment on property, access to locally-produced clean energy, simple contracting, and savings from year 1.

How a VPPA Works

  • 1Clearway and Customer agree to a fixed price PPA for power and RECs. Clearway develops, owns, and operates the facility.
  • 2Clearway delivers power from wind farm to the Electric Grid Operator (ISO/RTO).
  • 3Electric Grid Operator (ISO/RTO) pays Clearway market price for power, known as the wholesale LMP.
  • 4Clearway and Customer settle for the difference between market price and agreed upon contract price. This provides a hedge against a Customer’s existing obligation to pay a floating rate for energy to serve its load.
  • 5Clearway delivers RECs and associated renewable attributes to Customer.
