There’s physical delivery, where the off-taker receives the physical electricity and EACs (Energy Attribute Certificates) bundled with the underlying power. There’s also financial/virtual delivery, where the off-take only receives the EACs for the agreed-upon volume. Which model you use depends on who’ll be balancing the grid and whether there’s a monopoly on power suppliers in a state.
The Client agrees that they’ll purchase 1) the entirety of the Energy Output the wind farm generates or 2) the (Number) kW/MW of the generated energy. This energy is delivered using physical/financial methods, and the Client/Power Provider will cover the costs of balancing the grid to the relative market value.
The Client must pay $(Rate.Amount) per kW/MW received to the Power Provider by the 1st of each month. If the Power Provider does not receive the payment by the 5th or by (Number) days after the due date, then the Power Provider may charge an additional late fee of $(Late.Fee).
The Power Provider understands that they are responsible for sending monthly invoices featuring detailed breakdowns, calculations, and highlights of the owed amount. The Power Provider must generate a special invoice that breaks down all the owed amounts and payment delay details in the case of default.
Payments must be made in United States Dollars (USD) using (Payment.Method1) or (Payment.Method2). Should the Client mail the payment as a check, they must ensure it reaches the Power Provider before or on the 1st of each month to avoid late fees.
The Power Provider owns the Wind Energy Equipment and is responsible for performing bi-annual/annual maintenance on the Wind Energy Equipment. These maintenance checks include but are not limited to cleaning the wind turbines, checking wires and connections, etc.
