Compounds that are bonded through covalent bonds are poor electrical conductors because covalent bonding is the bonding between two non metal elements only and they share their valence electrons, unlike the ionic bonding that bonds a metal and a non metal that transfers electrons. We all know that only metals are good conductors of heat and electricity, so when two non metals bond, they don't have the characteristics of metals, so they are poor in conducting.
