A power purchase agreement (ECA) specifies the contract between two parties: (a) the seller producing electricity, and; (b) the purchaser who wishes to purchase electricity. It defines all the conditions of sale in between. A PPA secures cash flow for a clean construction transfer (BOT) or a concession project for an independent power plant (IPP). This is between the buyer (often a state-owned electricity supplier) and a private electricity producer. Duration – construction period plus [15] years of operation (3.1), with the possibility of renewal by mutual agreement [must review this complete renewal work with local supply rules] The above NSA should be distinguished from power purchase agreements in a deregulated electricity market where the agreements are usually power purchase agreements with a private producer where the power plant already exists or where the kr aftwerk is con built at the initiative of the private producer. For examples of this type of PPA, click on the following sample links: Edison Electric Institute Master Power Purchase & Sale Agreement (PDF) (4/25/2000) and Tri-State PPA.

The ECA described here is not suitable for electricity sold on world spot markets (see Deregulated Electricity Markets below). This summary focuses on a thermal base load system (the problems would be slightly different for thermal or hydraulic systems in the mid range or with a peak load). . . .
