Seventy-eight years ago, Bandera Electric Cooperative was born out of the courage and determination of local leaders to bring electricity to the rural Texas Hill Country. It was our early member’s dedication and community spirit which enabled our communities to thrive through the 20th century.

In this new century, we are once again seeing a disparity of essential services, however this is not about electrification, this is about the "digital divide."

Just as we were 78 years ago, BEC is here to provide much needed services to our members.  BEC is currently testing a broadband internet pilot in the city of Bandera, as well as surveying members across our service territory to gauge member interest.
