About SEA

Solar Energy Association (Reg.No.195/2012) is formed in the year 2012 to promote development of solar energy in India. Being concerned with the power crisis in Tamilnadu affecting the Industries productivity and difficulties faced by the people in all walks of life we have formed the association which works for promoting Solar Energy Parks all over Tamilnadu to the tune of 1000 MW by pooling the investors, manufacturers, EPC contractors, suppliers and state government bodies to do the solar energy parks in a faster and proper manner with affordable cost.  The park will be managed by the right personnel, single administration and with easy TNEB GRID connectivity. At a later stage, all S E Ps can come under one cluster to establish a Common Facility Centre.

We being lead by the visionary person Mr. Raju V R Palanisamy, President of the Association We can implement the Tamilnadu Solar Energy Policy in a faster manner and make Tamilnadu to become a self sufficient State in Generation of Power. To achieve this we act as a Nodal Agency between Governments / Electricity Board and investors in promoting solar energy projects and also play a vital role in educating & motivating members and power consumers in conservation of energy and production of low cost electricity. Our vision is to make Tamilnadu as self sufficient state in electricity resources in a faster manner.

Tamilnadu Solar Energy Policy

  • According to the policy, Tamilnadu Government allows to establish Solar Energy Parks in which individual units can establish the required capacity of solar power production according to their obligation.

Fututre plans of the Association

  • Appoint world's best consultants to find out the best state-of-art technology, right equipments, right price for bulk purchases etc., as the entire operation will be shared by the units and the power generation also will be shared by them
  • The Association is planning to open Regional Offices in Chennai, Madurai, Trichy, Coimbatore, Salem and Vellore under the control of Vice-Presidents to motivate the Industrialists Regional / Sector wise and every Region will be given a target according to their Energy Consumption

Benefits for Members joining the association

  • The Central and State Subsidies can also be availed by the Association for R&D, manufacturing, sales & services and an Institute to train the Manpower etc.
  • For example, a Textile Unit or a shopping mall utilizing 2 MW power can invest only for 120 KW Solar Power ie., 6% of their obligation, while if 100s of Units come together under the Solar Energy Park, we can produce sufficient MW of power

Need for the Association

Association is formed by groups of individuals who voluntarily enter into an agreement to accomplish a purpose working in similar areas of activity in order to facilitate their meeting and exchange of views, and their action to advance their objectives. Our membership includes a diverse group of citizens including investors, manufacturers, EPC Contractors, suppliers, state government bodies and planners specializing in establishing the solar energy parks in a faster and proper manner at affordable cost.

For setting up of Solar Energy Plants, the following are inevitable.

  1. Suitable Land
  2. All permissions & liasoning
  3. Civil Construction Work
  4. Selection of international standard Technologies.
  5. Selection of Modules and other equipments.
  6. Power generation.
  7. Commissioning of the Plant.
  8. Starting power generation and supply to the grid in a short span of time.
  9. Administrative body required for power generation.
  10. Selection of third party for power sale.
  11. Sale of power and it's related correspondences.
  12. Operation and Maintenance of the Plant for 25 years with R&D Facilities.

It is difficult for any individual investor or an individual company to meet all these requirements. Even though they are interested, many people are not coming forward to promote 'Solar Energy Plants' individually. Associations present thematic conferences for their membership. It will provide you legal assistance in the negotiation of the contract with the resource provider, knowledge and resources helpful to ultimately meet the objectives.
