As you can see from the graphs and table, the Solar PPA options has the benefit of no upfront costs and the savings are around €450,000 over the life of the system.

If the business purchases the PV system outright, it must pay for the system in the beginning, but the financial saving over the same term is over €700,000.

Simple rule of thumb - if the business is cash rich, then pay for the system. If the business doesn't have the cost of the system in the bank, but still wishes to proceed, the our PPA is the best option.
