Private Power Regulatory Framework
Latin America and the CaribbeanOctober 22, 2020
K&M was engaged by USAID to assist the Jamaica Public Service Company, Ltd., the state-utility, to establish the regulatory and technical conditions necessary for the development of private power projects on a turnkey basis. K&M’s scope of work included: identifying regulatory and legal barriers, prepared pre-qualification notices and documents used to short-list project developers, establishing evaluation criteria for the prequalification process, preparing construction contracts, preparing tender documents, and writing Implementation and Power Purchase Agreements. Directly resulting from K&M’s work, the Jamaica Public Service Company procured private turnkey contracts for over 200 MW of additional capacity to its system. This represented an approximate 37% increase in installed capacity over the entire national grid system.
