The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) has been summoned to appear before Cabinet to answer questions regarding complaints of exorbitant electricity bills.
Energy Fayval Williams on Tuesday told Radio Jamaica News that the matter was discussed at Monday’s meeting of the Cabinet.
JPS representatives will make a presentation at next Monday’s Cabinet meeting.
The Energy Minister said the utility company will provide the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) with an analysis of the complaints received from customers.
The OUR is awaiting “the analysis from the JPS,” she said, adding that the government has “indicated the urgency of it.”
It was important to receive the information requested “within the next couple of days,” she said.
There has been an increase in complaints of high electricity bills since March when the Government introduced stay at home orders.
The matter has been given greater attention since Attorney General Marlene Malahoo Forte complained of a huge increase in her bill.
