Mahmood Malik, Chief Executive Officer of IDCOL and Md Anwarul Islam Sikder, Chairman of SREDA executed the agreement from their respective organizations.

The program will follow the same modality of the existing solar home program of IDCOL under which four million solar home systems have been installed in the off grid areas of Bangladesh.
