SEBA is a non-profit organization founded in 1989 in order to act as a consultant to the users of the first rural electrification programs with autonomous photovoltaic solar energy.
In 2000, when the Real Decreto which allowed connecting photovoltaic systems to the power grid and selling the produced energy to the electric utility was published, SEBA was one of the first actors in installing and managing this kind of systems, facilitating the complex task of legalizing the system and selling the energy to the electric utilities.
