JPS customers to see 2 per cent cut in December bills

A statement from the JPS says the reduction is the result of falling oil prices and improved efficiencies at the company.

The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) says customers will see a two per cent cut in their bills for this month.

That's about $107 less than the amount paid on last month's bill for the average residential customer who uses 165 kWh per month,

A statement from the JPS says the reduction is the result of falling oil prices and improved efficiencies at the company.

The JPS also says the overall cost of electricity has been steadily decreasing over the past 12 months.

The fuel charge on electricity bills changes each month, depending on the price at which the JPS and other power generating companies buy oil to produce electricity.
