Belize Electricity Limited Chan Chen substation renamed in Honor of Jose J. Espat

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On March 13, 2024, Belize Electricity Limited’s (BEL) substation in Chan Chen Village, Corozal District, was renamed the Jose J. Espat Substation in honor of Espat’s remarkable contributions to BEL.

 Espat dedicated over 30 years to BEL.

He first joined the company in February 1966 and retired as the Distribution Manager in April 2001. 

During his tenure, Espat was instrumental in establishing the relationship between BEL and Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), in Mexico. 

At the official ceremony, Espat made the following remarks, “You’ve got to keep looking forward, you’ve got to keep looking ahead, you’ve got to plan ahead. The only time you should look back is to see how far you’ve come. When I first started as a little boy, we only had a diesel generator, and everything had to be done manually.”

Today, BEL serves 10 service areas via a national electricity grid supplied by multiple energy production sources including hydro, biomass, solar, fossil fuels, and power supply from CFE. 

The new Jose J. Espat Substation was commissioned in May 2022 and serves as the main source of power supply for the Corozal District.
