83% of power service restored to customers left without electricity in Jamaica due to Beryl

The Minister of Science, Energy and Technology of Jamaica, Daryl Vazassured this Tuesday that 83% of the clients who were left without electricity due to the passage of Hurricane Beryl on the Caribbean island already have access to electricity.

However, Vaz said at a press conference that the municipality of Saint Elizabeth, located in the south of the island and which suffered the most damage from the cyclone, will not have service resumed “before the beginning of August.”

Vaz noted that the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) had anticipated 97% power restoration by Saturday, July 13, but it currently stands at 83%, with 573,000 of the 682,000 customers who lost power following the impact of the hurricane now connected.

The head of the Energy Department also indicated that the magnitude of the damage and the weather conditions “are making it difficult to restore power in the area.”
