It`s a confusing system, but long-term PPP contracts give Google the certainty of how much we`re going to pay for future energy, while we give renewable energy developers the stability to finance and build new projects – and thus maintain the principle of additionality, that each electricity agreement should bring more renewable energy to the grid. “Of course, this buying structure was not optimal, because we basically have to buy electricity “twice” – once at the wholesale level and again at the retail level,” says Demasi. But in 2009, the optimum did not exist. In 2009, our data center team began to study POWER Purchase Agreements (PPAs): large-scale long-term contracts to purchase renewable energy in quantities that would meet the needs of our business. The idea behind using an AAE is simple: Google cannot buy clean energy from our distribution companies because the regulatory restrictions apply to our retail contract, and we cannot produce it far enough behind the measuring device in our data centers due to physical and geographic constraints. But at the wholesale level, we can buy it directly from developers on the same networks where we operate our data centers. From a contractual point of view, this is not ideal, but since regulated services offer little or no retail options to buy renewable energy, it is often the only way to buy renewable energy at the supply level on the same networks where we have consumption. The question is, “How do we get a credit at the retail level” for the renewable energy they buy at the wholesale level?” Electricity aaducation contract (AAE) for medium to large oil power plants (example 5) – standard electricity contract for use in developing countries for oil-fired power plants. Prepared by the international law firm for the World Bank as an overview of the provisions often found in air contracts at international private power plants. The answer is given to the Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) issued by the renewable energy industry to cover each unit of energy produced from renewable sources. Manufacturers can use RETs to check how much clean energy they produce, and consumers can purchase this audit based on their consumption. When Google buys renewable energy, in addition to physical energy, we also buy the corresponding RECs. We then sell renewable electricity to the wholesale market, but we maintain the RECs.
We operate our facilities with regular electricity purchased by local utilities, and we sustainably reduce RETs to our actual energy consumption, thereby reducing our carbon footprint. The assertion that We have made energy is that these PPAs with non-utility companies are illegal. The same argument was made in Florida, where legal uncertainty over electricity contracts has kept developers out of the state for years.
