Bermuda’s Electricity System is at a critical crossroad.
After decades of service, our infrastructure and network are in urgent need of upgrades.
Three major upgrade projects are proposed, which will increase reliability, stabilize rates, create jobs, decrease environmental impact, bring economic benefits to the Island, expand renewable energy sources and introduce value-added services for our customers.
YOUR ENERGY FUTURE:
Three Interdependent Projects for Maximum Benefit to Bermuda
- Replacement Generation: the development and construction of new, dual-fuel, high efficiency replacement generation on BELCO’s existing Pembroke facility:
- Transmission & Distribution: upgrades to overhead and underground cables to support, and the; and
- Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG): implementation of an LNG supply chain through importation of LNG, using a competitive tendering process for supply, which will be processed through a third party LNG terminal and natural gas pipeline built in Bermuda.
WHY BUILD IT?
TRANSMISSION & DISTRIBUTION:
Replace underground transmission cables, upgrade distribution assets and facilities and implement advanced metering technology.
LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS:
WHY SWITCH FUELS?
Introduce natural gas to Bermuda through a competitive LNG procurement process, with appropriate governance oversight.
