JPS installs RAMI system in Kingston 20

On Tuesday the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) carried out its scheduled transfer of sections of communities in the Kingston 20 area to the Residential Advanced Metering Infrastructure (RAMI) system.

This comes as part of the company's ongoing effort to regularise illegal electricity consumers.

As of Tuesday, residents in the following areas who have completed the regularisation process are now on the new system and benefitting from legal and safe supply.

These are: 440 Drive, Sterling Avenue, Top Olympic Way, Top Balcombe Drive, Waterhouse Phase 3, Penwood Road, and all roads leading off.

Residents who have not yet completed the regularisation process have been removed from the system. JPS continues to appeal to those persons who did not complete the process to do so, in order to have their electrical supply restored.

The company is also appealing to persons across the island who do not have regularised service, to take steps to do so, as the campaign to legalise all users continues in earnest.

JPS has been fighting the problem of illegal usage of electricity through a multiplicity of methods, including operations to remove 'throw-ups', meter inspection, account audits, and the implementation of anti-theft networks in sections of the island.
