What is SWELECT’s Open Access Power Solution?

The Industrial and Commercial sectors  consumes over half of the World’s energy. High fossil energy usage is not only costly to the environment due to rising carbon emissions, but also affecting company’s profit margin. For Industries in particular, utility bills account for at least 10% of company revenue. With SWELECT’s solar power solutions, high fossil energy HT consumers are beginning to utilize green energy to benefit both their profits and the communities they serve.  

As per  Electricity act 2003, high power usage consumers, typically HT Commercial & Industrial consumers may meet their RPO (Renewable Purchase Obligation) commitment by choosing power purchase from IPP (Individual power producer), who produces RE (Renewable energy) from their Off-site Solar farms  and supply to them at a reasonably lower than State DISCOM( Distribution companies) tariffs. Buying green energy for their  consumption, reduces not only their power cost, but helps to avoid the CO2 emissions due to fossil fuel production. SWELECT offers very attractive Open Access plans to meet the green energy demand of its clients.

How it works?

  • Swelect will generate solar power from its existing(owns MW capacity Solar farms in Tamilnadu) or new Solar farms.
  • Signs long term bilateral Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the HT  consumers on an attractive solar energy tariff based on their choice of open access model
  • Generated Solar power will be delivered to consumer’s HT locations through state DISCOM grid.
  • Consumers pay only for the power consumed at their location.
  • Swelect undertakes end-to end operation and maintenance of the plant

As the name suggests, this plan enables one or more group of HT consumers to invest jointly 26% of the equity in the SPV project. Consumers  signs long term PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) with Swelect and collectively consumes minimum 51% of the power generated from the Solar SPV which will be developed and maintained by Swelect. Swelect holds the ownership of the solar plant, and the consumers pay only for the energy delivered to them as per the PPA through the State DISCOM grid.
