The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) says it is working on a digital application to detect electricity theft.

JPS says it is partnering with the World Bank, and United States-based entity, Impact Lab, to develop the application.

The light and power company says it expects to launch a pilot of its anti-theft app by the end of the first quarter of this year.

The JPS says the World Bank, the Impact Lab and JPS teams will work together to ensure the suitability of the application for the Jamaican environment.

The company says last year, it lost more than US$18 million because of fuel costs the company could not recover as a result of electricity theft.
