Generation Expansion Plan - August 2010

The generation expansion plan is largely influenced by the need for new and more efficient generating capacity to reliably meet system demand at least economic cost. The plan is also an integral part of an overall strategy to reduce energy cost and Jamaica’s dependence on imported liquid based fossil fuels. As such the plan aims to support the implementation of the National Energy Policy 2009 - 2030, focusing on: (1) increasing the contribution of renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro and biomass) in electricity generation; (2) effecting fuel diversification through the development of the natural gas industry.
