Greenfinity Energy Ltd of Bangladesh has exported the non-traditional high-tech solar panel to Malaysia in a limited scale.
Greenfinity said it has exported customized mono-crystalline solar panel worth about US$ 0.1 million, the first consignment in the first week of March 2012, followed by a few small consignments.

Golam Baki Masud, managing director of Greenfinity Energy Ltd, told the said that his company is also expecting supply orders from Middle East countries like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and Myanmar.
He said that Malaysia produces good quality solar panel but the companies in the country find Bangladeshi products cost-effective and of good quality.
