This month JPS, customers will see a four per cent reduction in bills as the Fuel and IPP Charge for January is $10.67 per kilowatt hour, compared to the charge of $11.83 cents per kilowatt hour applied to December bills.

Jamaica Public Service company customers will see yet another reduction in bills this month, as the Energy Company continues to pass on savings from falling fuel prices to its customers.

This month, customers will see a four per cent reduction in bills as the Fuel and IPP Charge for January is $10.67 per kilowatt hour, compared to the charge of $11.83 cents per kilowatt hour applied to December bills. 

This is the lowest Fuel and IPP Charge since 2005.

The JPS says the total cost per kilowatt hour of electricity now stands at $25.29, for residential customers. 

Despite the reduction in bills, the company is urging customers to consume energy wisely, as the final bill amount depends on how much energy is used.
