Expect power cuts: JPS load shedding due to generation shortfall

JPS has said it will carry out load shedding Monday evening due to an unexpected unavailability of some generating units belonging to JPS and one of its Independent Power Producers (IPPs).
 
As a result, customers in Blocks D, G and I may be affected by power outages from 6:30 - 10:00pm. These Blocks cover sections of the following parishes: Kingston & St. Andrew, St. Catherine, Clarendon, Trelawny, St. Mary, St. Ann, St. Thomas and St. James. 
 
A list of communities in these Blocks may be found on the JPS website and social media platforms @myjpsonline.
 
JPS apologises for the inconvenience and says it will make every effort to minimise the impact on its customers.
