Bahamas Power and Light customers are embracing technology as nearly 27,000 of them have paid their bills online in the face of social distancing norms.
The energy giant adopted a paperless system back in April to encourage its customers to receive their bills electronically, either online or through text message.
BPL CEO Whitney Heastie, in a statement, said amid the pandemic, the company has focused on improving its online platforms, inclusive of a website upgrade with up to date, online views of customer accounts, also providing convenient payment option and working software vendors to correct a problem created by a needed security upgrade.
According to the statement, online payments in May totaled $10.5 million, nearly as much collected by payments through cashiers at partners Cash-N-Go, Suncash and Mango where payments totaled $10.8 million. (source)
