“JPS is proud to be partnering with New Fortress Energy to lead the introduction of natural gas to Jamaica,” said JPS President & CEO, Kelly Tomblin. “The country has been trying to achieve fuel diversity for a long time, and 2016 represents the year that it has really happened, with the introduction of gas, grid-scale solar, and the addition of significant wind capacity to the grid. Natural gas will play a key role in transforming the energy sector, while supporting industrial development and economic growth. We are definitely on the threshold of great things for Jamaica and the region,” she said.
