Golding Wants Govt. To Provide Report On JPSCo Generating Capacity


Opposition Senator, Bruce Golding, has filed a motion calling for the Government to provide a detailed account of the generating capacity of the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo) and the steps being taken to ensure that there is adequate and reliable supply of electricity to meet the nation’s requirements.
Senator Golding, in moving the motion at last Friday’s (Oct.17) sitting of the Senate, said that the island had been “plagued over the past several months with frequent disruption of electricity supply causing inconvenience, loss of production and damage to equipment and appliances”.
He added, “and whereas specific assurances given by the JPSCo to ensure a consistent and reliable supply of electricity have not been fulfilled, be it resolved that the Government provide a detailed account to the Hon. Senate of the current state of the JPSCo’s generating capacity and the steps that are being taken to ensure an adequate and reliable supply of electricity to meet the nation’s requirements”.
