More than $100 Million Saved Under Energy Efficiency Programme
The Government has saved more than $100 million in energy costs under the Energy, Efficiency and Conservation Programme (EECP).
Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, said the programme has resulted in a significant reduction in the use of electricity in State entities from 410 gigawatt-hours (GWh) since the beginning of the programme in 2011 to less than 400 GWh in 2015.
“This achievement is significant in helping Government to deliver on its promise to the people of Jamaica for sustained economic growth of five per cent in four years,” he said.
