This option is a long term 20-40-year lease. You buy the renewable electricity at a discount to market rate and the investor pays upfront for installation and takes investment return.
Lease to Own
This option is a medium term 15-year lease and is a manufacturer lease scheme that’s fully maintained and designed to be cash positive. Its shorter term compared to a PPA option and the asset is gifted at end of lease.
This option is a medium term 7-10-year loan. Designed to be annually cash positive, the majority of savings in the loan period are used to repay capital and interest.

Subject to suitability criteria, we have a portfolio of leading energy efficiency investors willing to offer a free, fully maintained system for a 20 to 40-year lease period. You grant rights to the investor to build and maintain the renewable asset on-site and you buy the power as a preference to buying from the National Grid.
You agree to a discounted initial price and a price increase mechanism with the investor. The investor funds this via pension pots, high-net worth individuals or retail market trusts, and then takes a financial return.
