Cleantech Solar Forges Ahead with Partnerships in Tamil Nadu to Develop 60 MWp Open Access Solar PV Projects for Blue-Chip C&I Customers


Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions to corporations in India and Southeast Asia, announces the signing of long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) with leading Commercial & Industrial (C&I) customers in the state of Tamil Nadu to develop ~60 MWp of open access solar PV projects. These projects are being built at the developer’s state-of-the-art solar park in Tirunelveli district. Power from these projects will be procured by the consumers on a captive basis and will power their manufacturing operations in the state. The projects are being developed for customers across diverse sectors such as automotive, chemicals and education.


With these projects, Cleantech Solar further solidifies its position as the leading solar developer in Tamil Nadu with over 15 blue chip customers and projects totalling ~300 MWp across operations and construction stages.

The long-term partnerships between Cleantech Solar and the top-tier C&I customers are expected to generate approximately 2,112 GWh of clean energy during the system’s lifetime, amounting to a reduction of 1,932 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions. Procuring cost-effective renewable energy from Cleantech Solar’s solar parks will enable the industry leaders make significant strides in their decarbonization efforts whilst reducing operating costs.
