PCJ To Assist Six Hospitals With Renewable Energy Solutions

Kingston, Jamaica –The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) says it will be carrying out major energy efficiency and renewable energy projects at six public hospitals, to reduce electricity costs at these institutions.


In a release today, the PCJ said that the projects are under the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) Deployment of Renewable Energy and Improvement of Energy Efficiency in the Public Sector Project.


The facilities slated to benefit are the National Chest Hospital and the Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre in St Andrew; the Bellevue Hospital in Kingston, the May Pen Hospital in Clarendon, the Savanna-La-Mar Hospital in Westmoreland and the Black River Hospital in St Elizabeth. 


The interventions at these institutions will involve energy audits and the installation of energy efficient lighting, solar photovoltaic technology and solar water-heating systems.


“We are pleased to partner with the UNDP on this project since the objective of incorporating more energy efficiency solutions into the public sector’s operations aligns perfectly with our mandate to reduce the Government’s energy bills,” said PCJ’s Group General Manager, Winston Watson.

The Deployment of Renewable Energy and Improvement of Energy Efficiency in the Public Sector Project is a US$12million initiative comprised of three components.  The energy interventions to be undertaken by the PCJ are being carried out under Component 3, which focuses on economic and fiscal instruments to facilitate the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the public sector.
