What are the off peak hours for JPS?

Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) has established specific off-peak hours during which electricity usage is typically lower, allowing consumers to benefit from reduced rates. These off-peak hours are designated as follows:

  • Weekdays: Monday to Friday from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. During these hours, electricity demand tends to be lower as businesses are closed, and many households are asleep. This period presents an opportunity for consumers to schedule energy-intensive activities, such as laundry, cooking, or running appliances, to take advantage of lower electricity rates.

  • Weekends and Public Holidays: During weekends and Public Holidays, off-peak hours extend throughout the entire day, except for the peak period from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Similar to weekdays, electricity demand during weekends and holidays may vary, with lower consumption observed during non-peak hours.

By aligning energy-intensive tasks with off-peak hours, consumers can optimize their electricity usage and potentially reduce their overall utility costs. Additionally, leveraging off-peak hours contributes to more efficient utilization of the electrical grid, helping to balance demand and supply dynamics.

It's important for consumers to familiarize themselves with the off-peak hours established by JPS and adjust their energy usage patterns accordingly to maximize cost savings and promote energy efficiency. By being mindful of peak and off-peak periods, consumers can play an active role in managing their electricity expenses while supporting sustainable energy practices in Jamaica.
