What is 'Capex?’

‘Capex’ (short for capital expenditure) are funds used by a company to acquire or upgrade physical assets such as property, buildings, or equipment.

What's the difference between a PPA & Capex?

A Solar PPA with UrbanVolt means there is no upfront cost to the business & the customer only pays for the power they use. UrbanVolt created the as a service solar model to remove the barriers to sustainability as not every business has access to capital to invest in green initiatives. It also allows companies to invest capital in other areas that will be more profitable.

A Capex offer means companies invest in the solar installation on their roof & they own the panels & all responsibility.

Which is a better option for me?

That depends on the business.
A solar installation is an asset that will decrease in value as time goes on. By going the PPA route, you can invest the capital in other areas that will be more profitable e.g investing in new machinery.
Capex is ideal for businesses with available capital looking for asset ownership, while PPA suits those seeking lower initial costs and predictable energy pricing without the responsibility of system ownership.

How do I know which to choose?

UrbanVolt can provide both options and we factor in additional costs such as annual maintenance repairs, cleaning etc. You will be able to see both offers compared against each other and therefore make the best choice for your business.
