JPS promises improved service to Hanover customers
The Jamaica Public Service (JPS) has promised to provide a more reliable service to its many customers in sections of Hanover, who have been experiencing frequent power outages.
According to the company's recently appointed operations manager for the Hanover, Winston Bansie, problems with the feeder that supplies power across sections of the parish, including the capital town, Lucea, have led to the frequent power outages and flickering being experienced.
"There is more than one thing that affects that feeder. One of them being the maintenance within the parish," said Bansie, adding that "the flickering is a part of the overall JPS' maintenance protection scheme".
Bansie, who was speaking at the recent regular monthly meeting of the Hanover Parish Council explained that work on the two feeders that supply power to the parish will be undertaken immediately.
He told the meeting that the company has mandated a new management team to have the service in the parish improved. His first job, he added, is to undertake maintenance within the parish and to put the least reliable feeder on another source.
The utility company has also promised to step up the repairs of malfunctioning streetlights across the parish.
