Power plants in Bangladesh produced 14,800 megawatts of electricity on Tuesday — a new record, according to the Power Development Board.

It is the highest daily power generation in the country’s history.

As much as 14,800MW of electricity was produced at 9pm (peak hour) on Tuesday, Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) Director (public relations) Shamim Hasan told the media.

Earlier on April 16, 2022, a record 14,782 megawatts of electricity was generated.

According to the PDB, this new production record is the result of maximum effort to maintain normal power generation and supply during Ramadan and summer.
Currently, the power generation capacity of the country is more than 26,000MW.
