Sun oriented Energy is an extraordinary hotspot for tackling power emergency in Bangladesh. The fundamental reason for this research was to decide the livelihood improvement of the beneficiaries through solar home system (SHS) at Gangachara upazila of Rangpur district and Hatibandha upazila of Lalmonirhat district under Renewable Energy Development in Remote off Grid and Char Areas in Bangladesh Project. A poll based overview strategy was utilized to gather essential information from the time of September 2020 to October 2020. A sum of 9280 PDBF beneficiaries of Gangachara upazila utilizing SHS were comprised the number of population of the study. The sample size of this research work was 369. A reserve list of 37 (about 10 % of the sample) was prepared for this study. All charts and diagrams were prepared using the software such as MS Excel and Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze the data. The study found that solar electrification provided direct and indirect improvement of livelihood to the users of the system, with many implications of a permanent nature. A correlation coefficient between the livelihood improvement by using of Solar Home System (SHS) with occupation, receiving training and problem faced (-.137, .744 and -.259 respectively) were significantly correlated (P<0.01). It brought about less contamination, greater light and more long stretches of light at night, just as less work for cleaning lamp fuel lights. Sun oriented force give to the general solace and fulfillment of the consumer. Government and the private sector should take more initiatives to disseminate SHSs and develop infrastructure to solve our power crisis problem.
