A customer who consistently uses 165 kilowatt hours per month, for example, will be paying about $400 less for electricity this month, compared with last month.

The Jamaica Public Service (JPS) customers will see a seven per cent drop in their bills this month for fuel costs.

JPS says the Fuel and IPP Charge on bills for August is $14.47 per kilowatt hour, compared to the $16.76 cents charge applied to July bills.

This means a customer who consistently uses 165 kilowatt hours per month, will be paying about $400 less for electricity this month, compared with last month.

The Fuel Charge on electricity bills changes each month, depending on the cost of the oil that JPS and other power generating companies buy to produce electricity.
