About Our Services


BPW's electrical division is second to none. The reliability of the system has proven to be superior to local competitors due to a comprehensive preventative maintenance program and year round right-of-way maintenance program. BPW provides electricity to nearly 7,300 customers through approximately 130 miles of lines.

Wholesale power from Piedmont Municipal Power Agency is supplied through three delivery points, one of which is owned by BPW. Piedmont Municipal Power Agency (PMPA) is a joint action agency in which Gaffney, along with 9 other upstate cities, is a member. PMPA owns 25% of unit #2 at the Catawba Nuclear Plant.

The pride of BPW is the service we provide. Service requests generally have a same day or next day turn around.

The electrical department is able to offer comprehensive lighting packages to area businesses and industries. BPW finances the project up front, providing all equipment, maintenance, and energy for a set monthly fee. We are always seeking to attract new businesses and industries to our service area. Our Electrical Superintendent, Brad Wright, can be contacted at (864) 488-8800 or via email at bwright@gbpw.com
