Grameen Shakti Installs Over 500 Solar Homes Systems A Day In Rural Bangladesh

This article just made my day. Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world, listed among the Least Developed Countries by the UN, and still Grameen Shakti will have installed a total of one million solar systems by the end of this year and has plans to install five million systems by 2015. Their success is based on tailored technical solutions, tailored finance solutions and rural supply chains and after sales services.

In other news from the subcontinent, wind is apparently now cheaper than coal in parts of India.
