OUR PROFILE

For over 90 years, the Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPS) has worked steadfastly to satisfy Jamaica’s energy needs. Growing from a modest network serving fewer than 4,000 customers in the early years, we have expanded our generation, transmission, and distribution capabilities significantly.

 
Today, with a customer-base of nearly 580,000, we are the sole distributor of electricity in Jamaica. We have a generation capacity that exceeds 620 Megawatts, using steam (oil-fired), gas turbines, combined cycle, diesel, and hydroelectric technologies. We operate 27 generating units including eight (8) hydros and one (1) windfarm, 54 substations. We also own approximately 14,000 kilometres of distribution and transmission lines. We also purchase additional electricity from 4 Independent Power Producers (IPPs).

 
Our ownership structure is four tiered. Marubeni Caribbean Power Holdings Inc. and Korea-East West power each holds 40 percent ownership, the Government of Jamaica owns approximately 19% and a small group of minority shareholders maintain less than 1 percent stake.

 
As a responsible corporate citizen, we have a vested interest in national development, and invest substantially in the areas of education, health care and sports. Additionally, we operate in an environmentally conscious/friendly manner, and abide by strict codes of transparency and accountability.

 
We have a cadre of 1,600 workers comprising highly skilled engineers, technicians and service professionals who work to deliver service to our customers.
