As a result of the harmful effects of GHG on the environment, and the increase in fossil fuel prices, the world is currently searching for sustainable alternative energy sources instead of fossil fuels. Bangladesh is a country that has an ambitious aim to rely on sustainable energy. This study discusses the viability of a 100MW PV power project in Rajshahi, Bangladesh by using RETScreen software. This includes benchmarking, emissions analysis, and financial analysis. The power generation cost of the proposed PV power plant is 0.09 $/kWh based on the benchmark assessment and the annual power provided to the national power grid is determined to be 140,155MWh. According to the emission analysis, overall perspective emissions to the surroundings will be decreased by 78,797.7 tCO2 annually. The NPV and cumulative cash flow demonstrate good results based on the financial analysis. The outcome is, the proposed project is both financially and technically feasible, as well as environmentally beneficial, and will assist the government in meeting the aim of developing clean and sustainable energy.

The objective of the research is to design and evaluate the grid-connected solar photovoltaic roof-top system at Tetulia, Panchagrah, Bangladesh using PVsyst software. The main factors of this research are the move toward renewable energy like PV with environmental consequences. The overall performance of a photovoltaic cell is determined by the amount of solar irradiation, the type of PV module used, and the orientation of PV module. Now, the grid-connected PV system is the best choice for large-scale renewable energy. For the case study, PVsyst software is used to analyze a 3kW solar PV plant installed on a rooftop for residential load consumption of 8.1kWh/day. The available AC energy generated by the PV panels is 4172kWh/year, and 1871kWh/year of surplus energy is supplied to the grid after daytime power demand is met. The yearly global horizontal irradiation of Tetulia, Panchagrah is 1485.4kWh/m2 and during the night, the quantity of electricity imported from the grid is 1050kWh/year. This technology helps in the prediction of power outages and backup energy storage because it makes use of the energy stored in the batteries.
