Strategies for Structuring Project Contracts After Negotiating the Terms of the PPA
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide counsel to parties involved in renewable projects on negotiating ancillary agreements to power purchase agreements (PPAs). The panel will review key terms and provisions, especially concerning financing and loan documents, discuss how the different types of renewable energy impact the transactions, and explain permitting issues.
- Land contracts
- Site leases
- Subleases or sublicenses
- Access, ROW, and easement agreements
- Security agreements
- Permitting issues
- Strategies for negotiation
The panel will review these and other essential questions:
- What are the critical provisions of the different ancillary agreements for the parties involved?

Ms. Peters has extensive knowledge and experience with renewable energy projects having aided her clients in successfully developing, operating and expanding hundreds of cogeneration facilities, clean fueling facilities and small to medium sized clean energy power plants over the past 20 years. Her work includes securing the real property interests for the land on which the facilities operate, environmental compliance, compliance with renewable portfolio standards, land use and permitting issues, including environmental impact documentation, negotiating power purchase and interconnection agreements, construction contracts, and agreements for the purchase and sale of both renewable fuel sources and environmental attributes, such as renewable energy credits (RECs), carbon credits, Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) and Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits. She has also been successful in closing several financing transactions for these projects. Ms. Peters is also a frequent speaker on power purchase agreements, ancillary agreements to support renewable energy projects, development of renewable energy projects (including solar, wind, digester gas, biomass, and landfill gas), evaluating environmental impacts under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in light of AB 32 and related greenhouse gas emissions regulations and green building.Close
