Palmyra leaves self-generation to connect to JPS grid

 Energy provider Jamaica Public Service (JPS) on December 23 connected the Palmyra Resort and Spa in St James, to the national grid for the first time, after the development abandoned efforts at generating its own electricity supply.


The north coast property, which was built over five years ago, was conceptualized with its own generating plant, which would supply the approximately 200 units in the resort.  However, this direction has been changed, after reliability challenges and uncompetitive costs rendered the project unfeasible.


“We are happy to be in a position to offer a competitive product,” JPS Director of sales and marketing, Garth McKenzie noted.


“We know how important it is for persons to have options. We are glad that after exploration of other alternatives, we were considered to be the energy provider of choice.  We do not take this privilege lightly.  We will continue to transform and work assiduously to show all Jamaica, that JPS is here to serve,” said McKenzie.


JPS is currently marketing a renewable wind and solar power generator, Solar Mill, to customers in Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, Grand Cayman and Dominica.
