A Call For Change at BEC. sign now

This online petition is to the government of the Bahamas for the following changes to be made at The Bahamas Electricity Corporation (hereinafter called BEC) to;

1. Lift the monopoly held by BEC forthwith. BEC has become a financial burden to the state and acts to the detriment of its consumers. Having the monopoly on the supply of electricity, BEC should be held at a certain higher standard of professionalism, integrity and honesty and it should not be defrauding and/or stealing from its consumers.

2. Stop BEC from unlawfully transferring BEC consumer bills on to other BEC consumer accounts without their prior knowledge or consent. Mr. Peter Rutherford (Assistant General Manager/BEC) claims that if a BEC consumer is related (family member) to another BEC consumer, or if BEC a person had enjoyed the use of the electricity provided by BEC, then BEC can lawfully transfer billings onto such BEC consumer account without their prior knowledge or consent. Mr. Rutherford also stated that it is BECs policy to do so, that it is an historically known fact that BEC does this, and that it is an everyday occurrence at BEC. In my book this is called fraud by false pretence and stealing by reason of service.

3. Stop BEC from continuing to charge customers for electricity consumption, after electricity has been disconnected by BEC. Whether you believe it or not, this is happening.

4. Stop BEC from overcharging its consumers and ignoring their complaints.

5. Change the law to prevent BEC from estimating/guesstimating our electricity consumptions. Estimates/guesstimates are tools used by BEC to defraud and steal from us and their other consumers. An estimate is not a legal demand for payment; an estimate is an amount stated a BEC consumer should pay IF indeed they actually consumed the amount of electricity estimated. We also seek to have such guesstimation practices by BEC cease forthwith.

6. Eliminate the Visit With Intent to Disconnect fee charge by BEC. The aforesaid fee is also unlawful, as BEC cannot be paid on intentions alone, but for product, work or services provided.

7. Get rid of the expensive cant stay on for too long, and the I need a vacation diesel generators which are bleeding our country dry on high fuel costs, and fuel emissions which poisons and endangers our environment. Why are we still fooling around with such generators in this day and age?

8. Convert our countrys source of energy to solar power, and create a solar farm to run our country and charge all BEC consumers an affordable for all flat rate fee for electricity consumption.

9. Demand that BEC forthwith refund its consumers for monies unlawfully paid to BEC on account of such unlawful acts.
Electricity in this day and age is a necessity; it should be affordable for all, is should not be a financial burden. In such economic adverse conditions today, the small man does not need such added financial burden and stress from BEC.

IF persons wish to petition and mobilize for change as aforesaid, or if persons have complained about their high BEC bills, and BEC either ignored them or did not adequately or properly address their concerns, then lets stop talking and start doing.

Everyone is waiting for someone to do something but nobody wants to start.
