Empresa de Energía de Bogotá

Empresa de Energia de Bogota is the headquarters of Grupo Energía de Bogota.

Currently, it is the second electricity transmission company in Colombia, enjoying a market share of 12.5 %.

The history of the Company is closely linked to the history of Bogota: one can state that progress in Bogota has been parallel to the development of EEB.

Electric light reached the capital for the first time on the night of December 7, 1889 when The Bogota Electric Light Company (BELC) lighted the most visited streets.

At that time, Bogota was the only city in the country that had public lighting for twelve hours a day, between six in the afternoon and six in the morning.

During the first half of the XX century, the Company underwent a series of legal transformations, but always maintained its technical evolution, becoming the sole power provider in the country's capital.

The city bought the entire shares of the company in 1951, back then, the Company had developed a large expansion plan, which allowed the Company, during its first fifty years, to have six hydraulic units and complete El Muña dam, which at the time was its main generation source.
