Raue Advises GP JOULE on Solar PPA with Airbus

Raue advised energy system provider GP JOULE on the conclusion of a power purchase agreement (PPA) for regional solar power with Airbus Helicopters in Donauwörth. The PPA, as signed by both companies, will secure long-term low electricity prices for Airbus, thereby strengthening its Donauwörth plant and helping to reduce the company’s CO2 emissions.

GP JOULE is expected to install a 3.5-megawatt-peak photovoltaic system at the Donauried Energy Park in early 2022, using approximately 8,000 Trina Solar modules. The solar power will be transmitted via a 6 km direct line to the Airbus Helicopters factory site. The plant is expected to supply Airbus with around 3.85 gigawatt hours of regional green electricity per year. The project will not rely on the German renewable energy support scheme.

Raue advised GP JOULE comprehensively on the drafting and negotiation of the Power Purchase Agreement with Airbus.
