KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) is appealing to residents of Whitfield Town in Kingston, to sign contracts and become regularised.

 This call, the JPS said, is in preparation for the implementation of its tamper resistant network — the Residential Advanced Metering Infrastructure (RAMI) system. 

The transition will take place on Wednesday September 26, the JPS said in a release.

The light and power company said that it has been working with community members to prepare for regularisation of service since early 2011, over 15 months ago. 

“This has included offering house-wiring assistance loans, and establishing temporary offices in the community to help resolve any outstanding matters,” said a JPS statement. 

“JPS is therefore strongly urging unregularised residents of Whitfield Town, to sign contracts for service or risk being without power, when JPS begins to cut-over unto the new system on Wednesday, September 26,” the company cautioned.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
