Our Commitment to Reliability

BEC has taken a focused and purposeful approach to improve the BEC electric system infrastructure and strengthen reliability for all members. To maintain reliable electric service, BEC performs regular inspections, invests in preventive maintenance, and regularly upgrades its hardware and software. BEC has also deployed fiber-optic lines for distribution automation or a “smart grid.” This strategic improvement increases reliability, improves efficiency, reduces costs, enhances grid security and is part of an ongoing effort to deploy “smart” devices on the electric system. These activities and investments in our infrastructure ensure we are optimizing system performance so we can continue to deliver affordable, reliable power to our members as the system continues to grow.
