Solar EPC Development Ltd. (SEPC) has successfully installed a 2.8MW rooftop solar project at AKH Knitting and Dyeing Ltd. (AKDL) extension unit in Manikganj. This is one of the biggest-scale rooftop solar projects in 2022 – so far.

Solar EPC’s dedicated expert installation and commissioning team completed this behemoth roof-top solar PV power plant project installation process in AKH Knitting and Dyeing Ltd. within 40 days. After the installation – Solar EPC’s dedicated maintenance team will look after the project after its successful commissioning.

Renewable energy generation in the country has been on the rise as Bangladesh is carrying the global leader tag in establishing green industrialization throughout the different regions and clusters. A crucial part of sustainability is the energy mix and use of renewable energy – which is going to revolutionize the power sector of the country. The govt. has set up the objective of producing 10% of electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030. In terms of Bangladesh’s perspective – rooftop solar PV projects are the best source of green energy source out of the huge amount of empty roofs.

Especially, Bangladesh’s textile and apparel industry has been leading from the front in implementing solar power project. On top of it, leading brands sourcing from Bangladesh have been pushing the T&A factories to source green energy.

On top of it, an uninterrupted power supply is still a distant dream in Bangladesh. Also, energy price is globally on the rise. The same is in Bangladesh’s case. To get a constant supply of electricity, industries need to have substitute energy sources to mix with grid electricity. Here comes the rooftop solar power plant, as it is cost-effective compared to a diesel generator.

On the other hand, natural gas sources are limited in the long run. As all industries don’t have gas connections to have gas-based captive power plants, LNG prices might increase again which will cost more to generate electricity. In this case, a Solar PV power plant can provide Lower LCOE for electricity Generation.

Solar EPC’s Valued customer USGBC LEED Gold certified AKH Knitting and Dyeing Ltd. is a globally reputed 100% export-oriented composite knit factory. AKDL has been exemplary in maintaining all the global standards. This mega solar implementation of 2.8MW rooftop solar PV project will take the company to a new height.

By using solar energy, AKDL will reduce 3325 tons carbon annually (see fig. 1). And, at the same time – it will lead AKDL to self-sufficiency in energy. Around 70% electricity the factory will get from the solar project.
Solar EPC Development Ltd. has been blessing for the country – as it is pioneering the solar power project implementation in Bangladesh. Solar EPC is associated with renowned and reputed international Solar Project Developer, EPC Contractors and Investors. Solar EPC aims for a better and greener world with eco-friendly energy technologies.

It offers cost-effective solutions to fulfil its customers’ energy needs. As an independent power producer, Solar EPC Development Ltd. design, build, own, and operate solar projects in the most efficient way.
Solar EPC provide solar solutions under two business models CAPEX and OPEX. In the CAPEX model, the client buys the solar system outright and pays the entire cost upfront.

SEPC delivers end-to-end turnkey project execution at a predetermined price and within a set time frame.The excess power generated from the solar power plant can be traded by the client to the utility through a net metering system.

On the other hand, Solar EPC’s OPEX is a zero-investment model where the solar panels are installed on customers’ roofs/premises with their own capital. The customer only pays for the electricity supplied to it under the long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), the price is 20- 40% cheaper than the grid tariff. In this model, the customer still gets the net metering benefit. Thus, going solar with Solar EPC Development Ltd. is not only helps make textile industries’ products cost-effective but also helps to save money on power.
Beside, the AKDL 2.8MW rooftop solar PV power plant project – the company Solar EPC Development Ltd. already accomplished the 10 KW Floating Solar System at Mongla which is the first-ever floating solar system in Bangladesh.

SEPC-Premier Energies JV’s Mongla 10 MW Floating Solar Project is under approval process by the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources. Apart from IPP utility-scale IPP projects, they have more than 10 MW cumulative capacity of OPEX and CAPEX model rooftop solar projects in pipeline and a 1 MW floating solar project at Khulna City Corporation (KCC).
