More than 31-thousand Jamaicans have applied to own shares in Wigton Wind Farm.
Energy Minister Fayval Williams made the announcement during her contribution to the sectoral debates in Parliament yesterday.
The number far exceeds the government’s target of having at least 10-thousand Jamaicans participating in Wigton’s historic Initial Public Offering, which opened in April.
Minister Williams says they received applications totaling more than 14-billion dollars, meaning the offer was more than 150% oversubscribed.
According to Minister Williams, Wigton will list on the JSE next week, which will open up the stock for public trading.
