5 Walmart Suppliers Team Up on Renewable Energy Buy
Power purchase agreements allow businesses to cut out the utility middleman and purchase energy directly from renewable providers, and they’ve become a popular way to meet sustainability goals while potentially keeping costs down.
In theory, the agreements give renewable providers a long-term funding source for new projects, while businesses get a sustainable source of clean energy at a more consistent price. But many smaller businesses have traditionally had less access to PPAs as they don’t need the large amount of electricity required to support renewable projects.
