Jovan Johnson, Gleaner Writer 

Today is the deadline for the submission of tenders to the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) for the supply of 18 rooftop solar photovoltaic systems.

The PCJ announced on July 4 that bids will be welcomed from local and overseas contractors.

The systems are to be installed at 15 schools and three public sector agencies.

The PCJ says the move is part of the Government’s thrust to reduce the national energy bill by using renewable energy.

The PCJ says bids will be opened today at its office at Trafalgar Road, New Kingston.
