For connections that exceeds the regular residential service with available infrastructure, a quotation will be provided for customers to make a Customer Capital Contribution (CCC) toward a line extension or a Commercial installation that is in need of electrical infrastructure.
The Belize Electricity (BEL) will absorb the first 300 Ft of line which includes transformation costs, service drop charges and road crossing infrastructure for any residential line extension project. The beneficiary shall be responsible for any difference in line distance. This process can include multiple beneficiaries and the CCC will be determined using this methodology.
For commercial line extensions, the estimate to provide service will be exposed through an economic analysis where CCC will be dictated by Customer usage and other factors which include unrecoverable items, cost of power and fixed costs. Normally the more income generation is forecasted the cost sharing portion of BEL increases.
For any installation that exceeds 200 amps service, customers will be expected to make a CCC based on the economic analysis result of the project. Once more, the CCC will be determined primarily by customer load profile/usage and other factors which included cost of power, unrecoverable items and fixed costs.
