BEL provided its efforts as a member of the Caribbean Electric Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC) and in support of its Disaster Response and Restoration Plan for member utilities.
“Our collective hearts bleed for our Caribbean family, whose lives and way of life have been destroyed by these hurricanes. BEL is joining forces with other CARILEC member utilities and will be sending teams of linemen to support their restoration efforts as thousands of customers are without proper shelter, potable water and electricity among many other basic amenities,” Jeffrey Locke, Chief Executive Officer of Belize Electricity Limited and Vice Chairman of CARILEC said. “The effort to restore electricity in island nations like Barbuda, Anguilla and Dominica will take months and much longer for life to return to a semblance of normalcy. The people of the Caribbean are resilient and united. So we look forward to the days ahead when the region rebounds from this devastation.”
The BEL team comprised of employees Michael Nembhard, Faron Flores, Arnold Tillett, Jessie Martinez and Brian Gentle.
