The country's power generation sets a new record, producing the 11,200MW on Jul 11, 2018.

Adequate gas supply has pushed up the electricity production to record high of 11200 megawatt on Wednesday.
Also full swing operation of all fuel run plants is also another reason for production hike, said the Director of Public Relation of power development Board (PDB) Saiful Hasan Chowdhury.
According to the state-owned organization, the electricity generation reached 11,059MW last week.
On Mar 19 this year the production was 10,084MW while the last year’s highest generation was 9, 705, said the PDB sources.
The PDB authority marked adequate gas supply as the key to producing power with all the oil-run power plants being operative.
Referring to reaching the benchmark, the PDB official said, “There was no load-shedding anywhere as we could generate the power as per the daily demand on Wednesday.
The power generation was nearly 11,000MW from couple of days in the evening time, on Wednesday it crossed the record, he added.
