Future

Starts Here

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.

OUR ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE

REPLACEMENT GENERATION

We are replacing 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 are introducing 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 that allows it to work.

We generate electricity at the plant

Transform the voltage for transmission

Transmit the electricity along power lines

Transform the voltage again for distribution

Distribute the electricity to homes and businesses

Functioning generators, transformers, transmission and distribution lines and supporting infrastructure are all critical to maintaining a safe and steady supply of electricity for Bermuda.

The current infrastructure is too outdated to meet the energy demands of today, much less tomorrow.

Our generators are inefficient, adding costs that impact your rates. We need to replace 50% of our generating capacity to bring it up to modern standards.

Our transmission and distribution lines are in dire need of an upgrade. 40% of our underground cables are more than 50 years old.

Critical upgrades to our infrastructure are needed. We have recently obtained regulatory approval to proceed with the plan to ensure reliable, safe and cost-effective electricity for the future.
