OUR report on JPS probe to be delayed 2011

The Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) advises that the report on the probe into the billing and metering issues of the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) will now be presented to the public on October 21, 2011.

The investigation began on August 29, and the report was scheduled for public presentation on October 7, 2011. The extension has been occasioned due to the unexpected volume of data (over 61,000 records) received which needed to be fully analysed. Initial analysis led to requests for additional data in order to seek clarification where inconsistencies arose. The JPS has been giving its full cooperation in the supply of data.
