BEC's Operations span the breadth and length of the Bahama Islands.
Over the years, BEC has expanded its operations throughout The Bahamas, taking over power systems in San Salvador, North Andros, North Bimini and Great Exuma in 1973.The following year, operations were further extended to include Central Andros and Cooper's Town (Abaco) and in 1975, Great Harbour Cay.
In the decade of the 1990's B.E.C. embarked on a second Family Island thrust, costing $50 million, designed to electrify rural areas and to expand the electrical infrastructure on other islands in response to economic growth. Ragged Island, Black Point in the Exuma Cays, Mayaguana, and Southern Long Island were electrified for the first time. Between 1994 and 1996 additional generators were installed at the power station at San Salvador, (Marsh Harbour) Abaco, Bimini, and (Rock Sound and Hatchet Bay) Eleuthera. In addition, improvements were made to the infrastructure in all island service areas.
Accomplishments since 2000 include construction of a new 8.8 MW Power Station in Exuma, upgrading of generation and transmission plants in Abaco, including the commencement of replacement of old submarine cables connecting the Cays, installation of a new circuit to supply the new development in Winding Bay, new generators and distribution circuits at Emerald Bay in Exuma, replacement of diesel engine generators at Harbour Island and Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera, and plant upgrade in Bimini and Harbour Island.
