RENEWABLE SOLAR ENERGY PROGRAM:
Mukti Cox’s Bazar has worked at off-grid areas of Moheshkhali and Kutubdia Island including other two Upazillas of Cox’s Bazar and Bashkali of Chittagong District by providing solar energy from February 2006 to June 2013 with the assistance of Infrastructure Development Company Limited (IDCOL).
The goal of the program is to assist the communities to develop the capacity for managing and operating the solar home system and create awareness among the communities about the diverse use of renewable energy.
The key features of the program are as follows:

There are additional income generation activities in the evening hours for the benefit of the communities.
There is a positive effect for better family planning and consequently reduction in population, as the communities will be better occupied the working hours.
