The solar industry saw rapid growth with the advent of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), a method of financing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system.  A PPA is an agreement in which a solar developer manages and executes the design, permitting, finance, installation, maintenance and monitoring of a PV system on a customer's property or roof at little to no upfront cost.

Solar technology has already proven its efficiency and competiveness with other fuel sources, and the implementation of batteries and methods of energy storage is becoming increasingly important. Battery technology in conjunction with a solar photovoltaic (“PV”) system enables the energy produced by the PV system to be used when solar irradiance is reduced on a cloudy day or eliminated at night.
