Peaking Power Plants

power plantAn Independent Power Producer (IPP) or Non-utility generator (NUG) is an entity, which is not a public utility, but which owns facilities to generate electric power for sale to utilities and end users. NUGs may be privately-held facilities, corporations, cooperatives such as rural solar or wind energy producers, and non-energy industrial concerns capable of feeding excess energy into the system

For the majority of IPPs, particularly in the renewable energy industry, a feed-in tariff or Power Purchase Agreement provides a long term price guarantee.
