BEC Chairman Leslie Miller told the media that six engines malfunctioned at the BEC power plant on Monday starting around 2pm which necessitated a massive load shedding exercise. This affected customers firstly in western New Providence before plunging eastern New Providence into darkness for most of the night. Power was restored early Tuesday morning. The Chairman stopped short of calling the blackout an act of industrial sabotage but said that he found it highly coincidental and strange that the blackout occurred shortly after BEC's union threatened consumers with a "black Christmas" and "no Junkanoo" if their labour demands were not met.

Leslie Miller and the Future of Electricity in the Bahamas-A Contradiction in Terms
...
I had hoped to avoid talking about Bahamas Electricity Corporation Chairman Leslie Miller again, but last week he went on the public airwaves (as they say) to spout so much nonsense I was unable to resist. In fact, after listening to Miller, I concluded that we are fortunate BEC is able to produce any power at all.
Miller was a guest on Jeff Lloyd's afternoon chat show last week. He began with the tired complaint that the Guardian media group was unfairly "lambasting" him because its owners hated the PLP and loved Hubert Ingraham. You know, the usual defensive tribal stuff for popular consumption. Then he got down to brass tacks.
"No-one in this country has paid off their light bill, either corporate or personal. That's 90 per cent of us," Miller said. "I owe BEC like everybody else. My home bill is pretty much up to date, like everybody else. The average person owes BEC over $5,000 - I don't owe them over $5,000 - that's just the way it is. Everybody should pay - including Leslie Miller."
There's no point analysing this corkscrew logic, but let me paraphrase it. He is simply asserting that almost no-one in the country pays their electricity bills - and he is no different from the rest of us.

Lady Pindling, Leslie Miller & the PLP's Culture of Entitlement
...
And Chairman Leslie Miller (who also owes BEC hundreds of thousands) says his personal businesses must be kept open by public subsidy to protect jobs. 
When you think about it, there is no way that a failing business can pay down hundreds of thousands in outstanding electricity bills. Any "deal" to do so is doomed to failure because the bills will keep mounting. It is an irreconcilable situation once it gets to that level. 
Miller is not the only one (we know about Jones too), but he was made chairman of BEC - and that should never have happened.
...
Meanwhile, Chairman Miller condemns BEC workers for ripping off the company - using practices he and other politicos agreed to over the years (Miller was also BEC chairman in the late 1980s) - and rages in the House of Assembly that copper thieves are living off the rest of us.

" -- BEC Chairman Leslie Miller
It seems the government has decided to turn the clock back at BEC too, putting a politician in charge whose sole qualification appears to be an inability to pay his electricity bills (an admission Leslie Miller made publicly prior to the election).
...
In 2003, when Roberts was cutting electricity rates, then Trade & Industry Minister Leslie Miller was talking about capping the price of propane fuel, which threatened shortages as no sane importer will sell at a loss.
...
In addition to presenting himself as BEC's financial saviour, Miller also likes to depict himself as an expert on alternative energy. He recently asserted that ocean thermal and wind energy are not feasible in the Bahamas, and completely ignored waste-to-energy, which is perhaps the most feasible option of all. He also offered to meet with Chinese suppliers to determine the viability of solar power.
...
Miller's garbled opinions on OTEC should worry anyone interested in pushing alternative energy.
...
I think that the statements by BEC Chairman Leslie Miller are very shortsighted, and if he pushes this ridiculous idea into the minds of the Bahamian people, this will continue to keep the Bahamas in third world status.
He is clearly poorly informed on, or simply oblivious to, the energy crisis that The Bahamas is experiencing.

Leslie Miller, MP BEC, Executive Chairman
While Hurricane Joaquin spared much of The Bahamas, some southern/central islands have not fared well.
The Freeport News in a post-hurricane report was informed that electrical service in Rum Cay and San Salvador will be out for at least two weeks. The same is likely for Long Island, Crooked island/ Acklins and Cat Island, based on reports but Bahamas Electricity Corporation Executive Chairman Leslie Miller was able to confirm the conditions in Rum Cay and San Salvador.
...
A good portion of the roof was blown off," Informed Miller.
In the meantime, until restoration begins to some degree, the BEC plants in Rum Cay and San Salvador will be utilized to provide temporary electrical source. For instance, in Rum Cay, residents have been told to take their small freezers to the plant. In San Salvador, the assistance will be limited because, according to Miller, the facility sustained heavy damage.
He has projected a modest figure of $250,000 for electricity restoration to the two aforementioned southern islands. Other than many poles being down, BEC teams will also be confronted with downed trees.
...
"Despite the problems they will have to deal with for weeks ahead, I noticed that generally the people of Rum Cay and San Salvador were in high spirits and I commend them," said Miller, who remains the Executive Chairman of BEC until the government appoints a new board to work with the management group Power Secure.
Miller and other BEC representatives were scheduled to travel around mid-day on Sunday to other parts of the Southern/Central Bahamas chain where airports were only reopened on Sunday.
