This guide is designed to help local governments solicit and execute solar power purchase agreements. It provides resources, tools, and model templates for local governments considering a power purchase agreement (PPA) to finance their solar system purchase. It reviews the function and design of PPAs, the composition of request for proposals (RFPs), and multiple case studies.
