Examine the possibility of local supply of equipment and manpower.
(PPA) Get statement from the utility or the government that the utility have an obligation to purchase the power at the specified price (preferable in US$ or Euro) during a fixed period.
Included in the PPA, the position of the meter from where the power supply
and the energy purchase is measured, shall be specified.
