Sorry, we are unable to report any outages at this time.
For #ourBEC members' convenience BEC has changed our phone options. Now, you only have to dial 866.226.3372 to reach customer service, engineering, pay your bills & report outages.
At BEC, one of our top priorities is providing the most reasonable electric rates possible to all of our commercial member-owners. In fact, it’s part of our mission.*
Members whose peak demand was equal to or greater than 50 kW for three months or more during the twelve-month period preceding the current billing fall into our Large Power Accounts group. BEC constantly monitors the demand load of our members to track their usage. If the peak kW demand is equal to or greater than 50 kW for three months or more during the twelve month period preceding the current billing period, then the account will be transferred to the LPS rate.
Any new account with a transformer capacity of 50 kVA or greater that has not established a prior service history with BEC will be classified under the appropriate rate schedule in accordance with a demand estimate performed by the cooperative. If an account’s highest kW load has been less than 50 kW more than nine times in a twelve month billing period that account will be placed on the General Service rate.
BEC has developed some innovative ways to help our members save money. TimeBased usage is one of them. With TBU usage rates, electric charges vary based on the time of day and the season, unlike flat electric rates where you are charged the same amount for electricity no matter the time of day you use it. This voluntary program is designed to allow our members to reduce their energy bill by shifting their usage from on-peak to off-peak hours.
*Reflected price is the energy cost only and does not include delivery fee, fuel cost adjustment, availability charge or other taxes and fees that may apply.
