The geography and topography of Bangladesh has created many rural and remote areas. The progress of rural electrification in Bangladesh faces specific problems because of the scarcity of power generation. The major electricity grid and a number of isolated local grids cannot economically reach many rural areas. A photovoltaic system is one suitable solution because of its flexibility, low environmental impact and freedom from fuel requirements. Therefore photovoltaic technology is a most feasible option to provide an alternative source of energy in areas where conventional grid electrification is a major issue. Various photovoltaic systems ranging from solar home systems, photovoltaic-pumping systems for drinking water, TV repeaters, public health centers, institutions and office systems have been installed in Bangladesh. More recently PV system are also effectively used in income generating enterprises such as grocery shops, tailoring shops, clinics, restaurants, rice mills, cellular phone services, barber shops, buzzers, and micro utilities which sell electricity to customers in the neighborhood. And Solar PV also introduced in the electrification of cyclone shelter in the coastal areas.
