Power generation reached 10 thousand megawatts. Bangladesh has yet again generated record power in a day. Power Development Board (PDB) spokesman Saiful Hasan Chowdhury said the power plants fed the national grid 10,084 MW at evening on Monday.
Bangladesh’s capability to generate power has increased threefold to 15,000 MW in the eight years of the Awami League’s two consecutive terms.
Power generation has also nearly doubled. On Sep 19, 2008, the highest power generation was around 5,000 MW.
The government is working on setting up a nuclear power plant and a base load power plant to upgrade Bangladesh to a middle-income country within 2021.
