In Dhaka, the Mirpur district has become a perfect study into the electricity needs and habits of slum-dwellers, as well as the potential for alternative light sources. Mirpur is a northeastern district in Bangladesh’s capital city. It is home to the Dhaka Zoo, the National Botanical Garden, the Grameen Bank’s head office and nationally recognized colleges and universities. Mirpur is also home to the Muslim Camp slum, where electricity consumption for daytime lighting is more than 1 kilowatt per household per day. According to Sajid Iqbal, a budding entrepreneur and a senior environmental science and management student at North South University in Dhaka, nearly 100 percent of Muslim Camp slum-dwellers use illegal electricity lines.
