Bangladesh set a record in electricity generation by producing 14,800 MW at 9 pm on Tuesday, said the public relations department of state-owned Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB).
BPDB sources said the last highest generation was 14,423MW on April 12, 2022 at 9pm.
Sources said the new record was set following addition of 800 MW imported electricity from Indian Adani Group. The cost of the imported power has not been settled yet, but officials said the tariff of electricity from Adani Group might be above Tk 14 per unit while average production cost is below Tk 7.
Now Bangladesh’s installed grid power generation capacity is over 25,000 MW.
