BELCO is committed to providing reliable, safe and affordable energy for Bermuda. Our existing infrastructure is unable to meet the requirements of today so we are making improvements to take BELCO and Bermuda into the future.
Beyond simply upgrading our infrastructure, we are committed to reducing our energy rates. This means streamlining our costs wherever possible and choosing the most cost-effective means of clean, safe and reliable energy production.
BELCO Supports Renewable Energy
We have replaced 80 megawatts of generating capacity with a new dual-fuel, high-efficiency generation plant.
Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)
To supplement the replacement generation, we have introduced our new cutting-edge battery energy storage system, which will allow us to regulate spikes in peak electrical demand more efficiently.
Transmission, Distribution & Retail (TD&R)
We are replacing old, worn underground transmission cables and upgrading distribution assets and facilities. This process will help us to expand the capacity of the grid.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
Advanced meters improve the efficiency and reliability of electricity service, while providing customers with more control.
When you turn on a light, you’re probably not thinking about all the infrastructure needed to make it work.
