Solar Mini Grid

Description


Solar PV based mini-grid projects are installed in remote areas of the country where possibility of grid expansion is remote in near future. These projects provide grid quality electricity to households and small commercial users and thereby encourage commercial activities in the project areas.
So far IDCOL financed installation of 26 solar mini-grids with cumulative generation capacity of 5 MW. The mini-grid projects have successfully created access to low-emission electricity for approximately 16,000 beneficiaries in rural Bangladesh. They are also contributing an estimated CO2 reduction of 29,300 tons during the project lifetime.
The World Bank, KfW, GPOBA, JICA, USAID, ADB and DFID are financially supporting IDCOL’s Solar Mini Grid Project.
