Bahamas Power and Light Company Ltd. announced on Wednesday that it wouldcontinue to suspend disconnections as long as the Government of The Bahamas maintains emergency orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BPL CEO Whitney Heastie explained. “The COVID-19 pandemic has presented enormous challenges. When the government went to 24-hour curfew, as part of our efforts to ease the pain and stress of our fellow Bahamians, we suspended disconnections through March 31. “Per our discussions with the government, I am happy to announce that the suspension of BPL disconnections will continue for as long as the government maintains emergency orders.”
The CEO encouraged Bahamians and residents to observe the curfew and the shelter-in-place orders. To that end, he highlighted the many electronic avenues through which customers can interact with BPL.

Mr. Heastie said, “Again, we recognize this is a difficult time. That’s why together with the government we have introduced deferred payments for those directly affected by COVID-19.
