PRESENTATION BY THE PRIME MINISTER OF JAMAICA BUDGET PRESENTATION 2009/10

Energy

“We will continue to promote the use of renewable energy which currently accounts for 5% of our energy mix. The Medium Term Socio-Economic Framework calls for that to be increased to 10% by 2010, 15% by 2020 and 20% by 2030. We are expanding the Wigton windfarm from 20MW to 38MW. We continue to promote the use of solar energy where economically feasible. Special concessions remain in place for the installation of solar equipment.


We will have to continue to rely on oil for the transportation sector but a change in our energy dependency must come and will come.”


– THE HON. BRUCE GOLDING. M.P PRIME MINISTER OF JAMAICA
