Bangladesh’s electricity generation crosses 10,000MW for first time

The Power Development Board or PDB said Bangladesh generated 10,084MW of electricity around 7pm on Monday.

“Power generation has been increasing for the last few days,” said PDB spokesman Md Saiful Islam.

The demand for power generation was also 10,000 MW at that point in time.

Although electricity generation reached its peak, parts of in the capital experienced load shedding in the afternoon as demand surged.

“This could be load shedding, or technical glitch that caused power failure during that time,” said Islam.
