Early & Consistent Newly Regularized Customers to Get Health Cards, Tablets, Data
May 20, 2021
The JPS Community Renewal Programme is taking a radical approach to regularizing new customers in vulnerable communities. The programme will see early and consistent newly regularized customers having access to a choice of social incentives, including health insurance cards, tablets for children and data for online access. Such customers may receive the Sagicor School Companion Plan, for the academic year 2021/2022 which provides extensive coverage for medical services, including hospitalization. Another choice for these new customers is a tablet for school children, with pre-loaded curriculum, discounted data packages and special zero-rated learning tools, to assist with online learning. The scheme is designed to reward the first 500 regularized customers across vulnerable communities, who consistently pay for 3 months.
Additionally, all new prepaid customers in vulnerable communities will receive a start-up gift of $2,100 electricity credit and 2 to 3 LED light bulbs. JPS is also engaging community members through Ambassadors, who will assist in disseminating information about the regularization process and energy management.
The launch of the programme commences on Wednesday May 26, 2021.
“We are excited about this initiative,” said Senior Vice President of Customer Service, Ramsay McDonald. “This is about facilitating safe and reliable supply for our citizens. Also, importantly, it’s about lending a helping hand to some of the most vulnerable in our society, who are striving to make a difference in their own circumstances.”
The JPS Community Renewal Programme which was first established in 2014, has been successful in converting over roughly 7,500 households to legitimate electricity usage in communities such as Ellerslie Gardens, Tawes Meadows, Standpipe and Majesty Gardens.
