No matter the challenges brought to our community by the coronavirus pandemic, BEMC wants to assure you that our commitment to provide you with safe and reliable electricity remains the same. We understand that you rely on us to power your lives as we navigate the impact of COVID-19, together.
All three district offices have been closed to walk-in traffic, but drive-through service is available.
To assist our members in this uncertain time:
All disconnects for nonpayment have been suspended on all accounts, to include residential, business,and prepaid.
There will be no penalty or late fees added to past due accounts.
The Board of Directors voted to postpone the April 1 rate change until May 1.
