Energy Minister, Fayval Williams, says a draft of the electric vehicle policy can be expected by the end of this year.

The policy is intended to create an enabling environment for the use of the technology in the public transportation sector.

Minister Williams says Jamaicans can also expect to start seeing Jamaica Public Service Company, JPS, electric charging stations by the end of this year.

Meanwhile, the Energy Minister says as part of ongoing talks, the Ministry is discussing incentives such as lower tariffs for the importation of electric vehicles into the island.
