Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Phillip Paulwell, says individual behavioural changes are critical in the fight to conserve energy and reduce the country’s energy bill.

He is calling on all Jamaicans to assess their consumption and seek to implement conservation measures.

“Every Jamaican can start in his or her personal way. Sometimes we don’t stop to think about the amount of waste and expense we contribute to our own financial situation and if we do, we will see very quickly how effective we can (be) in minimising what we spend,” the Minister said.

Mr. Paulwell was speaking at an energy efficiency and conservation workshop for agencies and divisions of the Ministry, at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston, on March 27.

He said the Ministry will be working towards becoming the flagship agency as it relates to energy conservation and will be seeking to transform the way electricity is used.
