To resolve the extreme power crisis and consider environmental issues of conventional generation, renewable power plants have been increasingly planned in Bangladesh. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) could be a viable solution for that. This paper covers technical and financial details for setting up a parabolic through a CSP power plant in Chittagong, Bangladesh. The simulation work has been carried out for 40 years with a 0.1% compound depreciation rate using a System Advisor Module (SAM).Thermal storage system has been integrated with the power plant so that electricity can be generated during the absence of sun and the Hitec solar salt is used as a heat transfer fluid. It has been found that annually 218 GWh of energy can be generated using 923 acres of land with a 12.58% of overall internal rate of return and 19.10 cents/KWh of levelized cost of electricity.
