Swarm electrification in Bangladesh village

In Bangladesh, daily power outages are simply expected. Cities like Dhaka and Chittagong experience around two to three hours of “load shedding” every day when residents are deliberately cut off from electricity in a bid to conserve power. And load shedding happens even more often in rural areas.

Deployment of wind turbines by edotco

edotco Bangladesh Co. Ltd. (“edotco”) recently has successfully installed two wind turbines in Shah Porir Dwip, Teknaf and Cox’s Bazar to support the need for power in remote coastal regions of Bangladesh.

It supplements by up to 30% the energy required from traditional sources, enabling Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to benefit from savings of fuel in off grid or poor grid sites. With power generation in excess of 10 kWh per day per turbine, this solution decreases overall energy costs of a site by reducing generator run-time. As wind speeds pick up, the power
