JPS Donates Solar Panels To Three Public Libraries

JPS-building-1--1-Kingston, Jamaica (JIS) – The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) has donated three solar panels to the Kingston and St Andrew, St James, and Manchester parish libraries.

At the official handing over ceremony held recently at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Library, Director General of the Jamaica Library Service (JLS), Karen Barton, expressed gratitude for the items.

She noted that the donation is timely as the JLS embarks on a thrust to implement energy efficiency measures in all public libraries.

She indicated that the solar panels will realise a three to five per cent reduction in energy consumption.

The JPS is one of the partners in the JLS Global Libraries Information Communications Technology (ICT) Project aimed at transforming public libraries and surrounding communities through the provision of state-of-the-art ICT resources, programmes and services.

The project is co-funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information.

Other partners are Microsoft, Universal Service Fund (USF), Culture Health Arts Science and Education (CHASE) Fund, EBSCO Information Services, Management Institute for National Development (MIND), Jamaica Information Service (JIS), The Gleaner Company and RJR Communications Group.
