The Berwick Electric Commission (BEC) operates the distribution system serving the Town and some adjacent areas of Kings County. Staff undertakes line construction and maintenance, meter installations and meter reading, hydro control and maintenance, and standby duty and trouble calls. Operationally the BEC employs three Powerline Technicians who conduct meter work and hydro operations as well. Customer service for new accounts and other day to day request are completed by the Billing Clerks located at the Town Hall. The Commission operates one fully capable double bucket truck, a digger derrick for pole setting, a vehicle for general transportation and a diesel 4x4 and a tracked vehicle for hydro operations. We also exchange aid with other Town Departments and support special events such as Gala Days.
