Energy Expo to Provide Alternative Ways to Cut Electricity Bills

KINGSTON – Consumers seeking to lower their electricity bills should be able to get information on the latest energy solutions at the 2015 PCJ Jamaica Alternative Energy Expo, which is set for Monday, June 29 and Tuesday, June 30 at the Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. The two-day event will provide a forum where consumers can get information on alternative energy products and services, which can decrease energy expenses in households or businesses.

The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) will have a team of renewable energy engineers at the expo to provide advice and guidance to consumers who are considering alternative energy solutions. A release from PCJ Sunday said people visiting the PCJ booth can consult with the company’s specialists about appropriate renewable energy technology and services for commercial operations or personal use. In addition, the PCJ’s energy efficiency experts will also be on hand to give tips and other useful information which can help householders and business operators to use energy more efficiently and cut down their electricity costs.

“The PCJ is aware that consumers are concerned about energy costs and we want to increase public awareness about products and energy saving technologies that can be utilised to manage energy usage and expenditure,” said the PCJ’s Group General Manager Winston Watson. “We also know that renewable energy solutions can be a major investment for a householder or a businessperson so we want to help potential customers gain as much knowledge as possible so they will make wise decisions to get the best value for their spend,” he added. The PCJ’s booth will also feature the company’s Solar PV Calculator which utilises information from current JPS bills to estimate the capacity of a solar photovoltaic system needed for a particular location.(Jamaica Observer).
