“Strengthening Energy Sector Resilience in Jamaica” is a three-year partnership between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Jamaica Energy Resilience Alliance (JERA). Led by Cadmus and with USAID support, JERA offers specialized support to Jamaican businesses seeking to reduce power costs, increase reliability of supply, and green their operations. JERA will help you:

  1. Understand how solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, including with battery storage (PV+), can benefit your business;
  2. Navigate the regulatory and installation processes; and
  3. Access financing from PV/PV+ developer partners with up to USD 50 million of available capital for investment-quality projects.

JERA is supporting a wide range of renewable energy market development activities to strengthen the resilience of Jamaica’s energy sector. See our program brief for more information: Jamaican Energy Resilience Alliance Program Statement.
