Tuesday, October 15th, 2019
A team of five Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) employees travelled to the Bahamas on Sunday, October 13 to assist Bahamas Power and Light (BPL) with hurricane restoration efforts on Abaco Island.

The BEL team will join other member utilities of the Caribbean Electric Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC) who have committed to assisting BPL with rebuilding its electrical infrastructure.
The team, comprising of Leroy Matura, Brian Gentle, Gregory Kerr, Alfeo Williams and James Teul, is scheduled to return to Belize in November.
BEL thanks these dedicated employees for their service, and their families for supporting the mission to assist a fellow nation in need.
