In a recent statement The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) has advised its customers to brace for higher electricity bills.

Read sections of the statement below:

JPS is cautioning customers that increasing fuel costs will reflect in higher electricity bills in coming weeks. The company has been experiencing higher fuel prices in the past few months, as a result of the international upsurge in prices.

Global uncertainties have led to increases in the price of both oil and natural gas. The increase in fuel costs has been compounded by the devaluation of the Jamaican Dollar.


Projections are that this could continue through the winter months. JPS is therefore encouraging customers to continue to practice energy management. Customers who have smart meters can monitor their usage on the JPS Mobile App on a weekly, daily and even hourly basis. 

JPS remains committed to the efficient production of electricity and to keeping customers informed and empowered on the best ways to manage their energy costs.
