How do Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) work in Solar-As-a-Service?

Under Enerdeal's PPA model, we own and operate the solar installation on your premises. Your company simply purchases the electricity generated at a pre-agreed rate. This model eliminates the need for your business to directly invest in solar infrastructure, simplifying your transition to renewable energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find answers to your questions about our offerings.

How long does it take to install the system and how does it go?

Installation is strictly dependent on the size of the installation. From the moment the contract is signed for installations up to 50 kWp, it usually takes up to 7 weeks. However, for larger installations, we are dependent on obtaining approvals and permits from both municipalities and the DSO, hence this process can take up to 12-18 months.

How long does a photovoltaic system last?

The estimated lifetime of a photovoltaic system is 25 years. Commercially available solar panels have a degradation rate of about 0.50% per year, which means that after 25 years of use, their efficiency will drop by 15%.

What if, during the course of the contract, the panels stop working as expected?

For 15 years, service and maintenance of the installation is completely on the EDP side. As part of EDP's service and maintenance of the installation, we provide an advanced Energy Manager system to ensure ongoing monitoring of the proper operation of the PV installation (including monitoring of PV energy production, alerts in case of failure, reporting and analytics, and real-time monitoring).

How does plant monitoring work in the Control Center?

Our engineers at the EDP Control Center monitor PV operation 24 hours a day, which, in case of anomalies, influences rapid response time, thus ensuring maximum reduction of plant operation downtime.

How does a photovoltaic installation work?

Photovoltaic modules are made of cells that convert solar energy into electricity. The direct current that is generated in this process flows through an inverter (inverter) and is converted into alternating current, the kind we use every day in our homes and workplaces.

Where can a solar panel be installed?

Solar panels can be installed on the ground or on the roof, but not all locations allow them. Each panel requires an area of about 2 m2 and should be exposed to the sun as much as possible - that is, there should be no shade where you decide to install the panels, otherwise energy production will be affected.

Is photovoltaics safe for the roof?

Properly fitted panels, together with the supporting structure, do not damage the roof. Their number, weight and mounting system are selected taking into account the type and parameters of the roof on which they are mounted.

Do photovoltaic modules only work on sunny days?

Photovoltaic panels also work on cloudy days, although logically production is reduced compared to a completely sunny day. Days with lower output are equaled by those with higher output, as evidenced by the fact that the leaders in the use of energy obtained using photovoltaics are Germany, which, it is worth mentioning, has slightly lower insolation than Poland, according to studies.

Does cold weather affect photovoltaic energy production?

The ideal operating temperature for solar panels is around 25℃. Solar panels perform better at moderately warm temperatures. This property of silicon cells makes the panels produce more energy in the summer due to the large number of hours of sunlight; in contrast, in winter they produce energy for fewer hours, but with greater efficiency.

Are PV installations safe for people and the environment?

As EDP, we make every effort to ensure that the projects we carry out meet the highest quality, safety, as well as environmental standards. This means that each installation complies with legal requirements and consists of high-quality, certified components. In addition, as one of the few companies specializing in providing innovative energy solutions for business, we provide take-back of old photovoltaic cells after 15 years under the Easy Solar model.
