As a general rule, the termination of a ECA ends with the agreed commercial operating period. A ECA may be terminated in the event of abnormal events or circumstances which do not comply with the provisions of the Treaty. The seller has the right to reduce the supply of energy when such abnormal circumstances occur, including natural disasters and uncontrolled events. The ECA can also allow the buyer to reduce energy if the value of the electricity changes after taxes.  In the event of a lack of energy, this is usually due to the fault of one of the parties involved, resulting in damages paid to the other party. This can be excused in exceptional circumstances such as natural disasters, and the party responsible for repairing the project is responsible for such damage. In situations where liability is not properly defined in the contract, the parties may negotiate a case of force majeure to resolve these issues.  Kenya – Power Purchase Agreement (AAE) – A simplified agreement for Kenya develops a relatively simplified power purchase agreement developed for the Kenyan Electricity Regulatory Board for use in hydro, geothermal or gas power plants. It anticipates both a capacity load and an energy load. The seller is to sell the entire net electrical power of the installation to the buyer. The Energy Regulatory Commission also proposes a link to a model ECA for large renewable generators over 10 MW and an ECA for small renewable energy projects of less than 10 MW on its renewable energy portal.
Pacificorp Power Purchase Agreement (AAE) for Large Power Plants (pdf) – Draft power purchase agreement developed by Pacificorp for power plants with a net capacity greater than 1000 kilowatts – relatively short agreement. Designed in the context of the U.S. regulatory structure. An electricity purchase agreement (ECA) or electricity contract is a contract between two parties, one who produces electricity (the seller) and the other who wishes to purchase electricity (the buyer). The ECA sets out all commercial terms of sale of electricity between the two parties, including the date the project will begin to operate commercially, the schedule for the supply of electricity, delivery penalties, terms of payment and termination. A ECA is the main agreement that defines the quality of the turnover and credit of a generating project, making it a key instrument for financing projects. Today, there are many forms of FTA that vary according to the needs of buyers, sellers and financing windows.   In the case of distributed generation (where the generator is located on a construction site and the energy is sold to the building user), commercial PPAs have developed as a variant allowing companies, schools and governments to source directly from the generator and not from the distribution company. This approach facilitates the financing of distributed generation facilities such as photovoltaics, microturbines, reciprocating piston engines and fuel cells. Recently, a new form of ECA has been proposed to market electric vehicle charging stations through a bilateral form of electricity reception contract. The above-mentioned ECA should be distinguished from contracts for the receipt of electricity in a deregulated electricity market, which are generally power purchase agreements with a private producer whose plant is already in existence or where the plant is built at the initiative of the private producer. For examples of this type of ECA, click on the following links: Edison Electric Institute Master Power Purchase & Sale Agreement (PDF) (4/25/2000) and Tri-State AA.
A power purchase agreement (AAE) provides cash flow for a Build-Own transfer (BOT) or a concession project for an independent power plant (IPP). It is between the “buyer” buyer (often a public electricity supplier) and a private electricity producer. The ECA described here is not suitable for electricity sold on world spot markets (see deregulated electricity markets below). .
