Omera Renewable Energy on Wednesday embarked on a partnership with Tarasima Apparels for installing a 2.6-megawatt rooftop solar panel.
Once installed, this would be the largest rooftop solar installation in the country, a statement claimed. Omera is a subsidiary of East Coast Group while Tarasima is of Bitopi Group.
Tanjil Chowdhury, managing director of East Coast Group, and Miran Ali, managing director of Bitopi, signed a memorandum of understanding at East Coast Centre in Dhaka. East Coast Group Chairman Azam J Chowdhury was present.
“This is a game changing moment for the country’s energy sector,” said Ali.
The renewable energy company aims to produce 200MW of electricity from rooftop solar installation by 2021, according to the statement.
