Frequently asked questions
Why not build large scale grids that cover more households, wouldn’t that be a faster way to ensure safe water access for everyone?
The capital investment on large scale grids is around 40x higher than for our mini-grids, while connection uptake and payment rates are generally lower. Experience shows that this is not business viable. Large scale grids also require a lot of political manoeuvring, which means that they take much longer to build.
What tariff are you charging?
An average household pays 30 BDT per m3 (around €0.31/m3) or 3 paisha/liter.
