Mr. Patterson was Keynote speaker at JEP’s 20th anniversary celebration at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge in Kingston, recently. The event also served as an awards ceremony for 11 staff members who have devoted 20 years of loyal commitment to the company, having been with JEP since its inception.
The company which started operations in 1995 now provides more than 20 per cent of the island’s power needs as supplier to the Jamaica Public Service Company Limited. JEP has more than doubled capacity over its 20-year existence. Collectively, along with sister company West Kingston Power Partners, it provides 190MW to the grid.
CEO Wayne Mckenzie, said at the event that the company is looking forward to participating in the push towards adding renewable capacity to local power supply and commended the company’s Jamaican staff who participated in the organisation’s transformation.
