Electricity Power Future in Bangladesh

For any development far-reaching/long-term plan is essential. Bangladesh has taken long term plan for the power sector. The country is determined to generate 24000 MW electricity per year in 2021, 40000 MW in 2030, and 80000 MW in 2041. To implement the plan, Bangladesh installed many power plants, and many are under construction.

Laws and Rules

The organization of Power Cell ascertains the rules and regulations for the power sector in Bangladesh. I have now given some important laws and regulations about the purposes of electric power in Bangladesh.

Laws

Power Cell of Bangladesh has committed some laws about electricity. Every citizen needs to know this. Some important law is given below. By clicking the link, you can see the PDF file of the law.
