Maybe I'm missing something but I'm a little disappointed with this interview (located at the bottom of this post). Is there a part 2? If so, where can I find it? Why would you tip toe around the REAL topics? From the moment I saw this I really wondered why would The Gleaner ask the CEO of JPS what kind of food she ate and what kind of music she listened to without following up with at least ONE substantial question about the direction the company is going in, especially when there's some real questions I have on my mind.
Like, why the hell are the prices so high?
Do you remember that ranting video that Vybz Kartel posted about JPS increasing the prices substantially once they realized that he was the one paying the bill?
Allow me to refresh your memory:
Did you know that if you live in Jamaica, you are forced to pay an electricity bill that can be close to and sometimes even higher than your RENT?! Am I the only one who find that insane?
The craziest part of all of this is that Jamaica is a tropical island, Jamaica is KNOWN for sunshine and radiance. Citizens of Jamaica can easily invest in solar panels and live the rest of their lives JPS-FREE because the good Lord has provided us with an abundance of sunshine to light a house, energize a generator with the option of hot water for FREE. Of course, you would have to pay for the actual solar panels but even the price of that isn't much compared to the amount the average patron pays JPS.
Did you know that china sells these panels for pretty cheap and there are NO IMPORT FEES associated with solar materials when shipping to Jamaica? You can find them at www.Alibaba.com.
For a matter of fact, how does Ms. CEO of JPS feel about this? I would have definitely asked her about her stance on solar panels. Does she see it as a threat or is she hoping that Jamaicans wont take it to that level? While they continue to suck out society's cash-flow.
How about the hurricanes, are citizens still paying for past hurricane damages? Why?
Or better yet, since the price of oil is dropping, will the citizens begin to see a decrease on their monthly statement?
I have a ton of questions to ask Ms. JPS, what about you?
If you had the opportunity to ask the CEO of JPS a question, what would you ask her?
I'm going to politely assume that Part 2 of this video gets in better depth, but just in case, lets help the Gleaner out by providing them a few questions of your own. If you had the opportunity to ask the CEO of JPS a question, what would it be?
