Frequently Asked Questions.
Question: What is a Vayu?
Answer: A Vayu is a commitment by an energy buyer to purchase energy from an energy developer (seller) at a specific price (the “bid”). The buyer continues to receive energy from its local provider and the seller deliver energy to the power grid at a different location. If the local provider price is lower than its bid, the seller receives the difference. If the local provider price is higher than the bid, the seller makes up the difference.
