Local Utility and Service Company Contact Information
Welcome to Bandera Electric Cooperative (BEC). BEC is a Touchstone Energy Cooperative whose power is primarily supplied by the Lower Colorado River Authority. By becoming a Member, you have also become part owner of a not-for-profit, independent electric utility. Bandera Electric was created in 1938 to provide our area with reliable and affordable power and operates by the Seven Cooperative Principles.
BEC distributes electricity to 23,033 Members and over 32,270 meters in a 7 county territory that's more than one-third larger than the state of Rhode Island. Our 94 employees operate and maintain over 4,464 miles of power lines which, if connected end to end, would stretch from our headquarters in Bandera, Texas, to Las Vegas, Nevada, then over to Chicago, Illinois, and back.
Cooperatives are locally owned and operated by the members they serve. They are democratically governed by a Board of Directors elected by the Members themselves to represent their voice in the business of the cooperative. The board ensures the cooperative is legally and ethically run according to its by-laws and Code of Ethics.
