how does PowerSmart Gold FOR BUSINESS work?

PowerSmart GOLD is modelled on the successful Power Purchase Agreements or PPAs that are common in the USA, but PowerSmart has redesigned it specifically for the New Zealand commercial environment. 

With PowerSmart GOLD a solar electricity system is installed on the roof of the commercial building and the business agrees to buy all power it produces. Because the business is only buying solar power and DOESN'T OWN the solar electricity system, there is no need to worry about any ongoing maintenance.

With PowerSmart GOLD there are several key benefits to businesses who choose to sign up:

  • Electricity rate for PowerSmart GOLD is often less than what is available through normal channels.
  • Electricity is produced locally using sustainable solar PV. This helps many businesses to meet their own sustainability goals.
  • Electricity rate is known for the term of the agreement, so no surprises. 
  • No maintenance liability for solar PV system.
  • A choice of either 10 or 20 year agreements.

*Subject to PowerSmart GOLD's standard power purchase terms and conditions.

Every PowerSmart GOLD system is bespoke, because no two businesses are the same.
