In a bid to improve its service to consumers, Jamaica’s light and power company JPS will be rolling out a new mobile application by September.
Concurrently, the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) will be investing US$5 million for the implementation of 25,000 smart meters this year aimed at empowering consumers with real-time monitoring of energy conservations, demand and consumption patterns, energy cost, remote control for connections and disconnections, among others. This will bring to total 90,000 smart meters across the island in the past four years.
Last year, the company estimated that it would spend US$40 million over five years to roll out a smart grid and cut line losses after reporting US$18 million in losses from electricity thefts.
