To commemorate National Tree Planting Day, the power partner trilogy, Jamaica Energy Partners, West Kingston Power Partners and Jamaica Private Power Company united to plant one hundred and twenty Logwood, Blue Mahoe and other seedlings at the companies’ newly adopted location in Seaward Mountain nearby the Hermitage Dam.

The total number of trees planted by the group companies since 2008 on Tree Planting Day is 3,620.  A team of over 60 employees journeyed to the site to give back to the environment that does so much for us, including providing the very oxygen we breathe.

As such, in addition to planting trees, we are committed to supporting our national initiatives and ensure that we play our part in monitoring the quality of air in the areas which we operate,” said Wayne McKenzie, President and CEO of Jamaica Energy Partners.

McKenzie, who leads the CSR team responsible for executing this event annually, is proud of the companies’ contributions to the environment today, and hopes that the seedlings planted on October 6, will continue to preserve the area; protect the Hermitage watershed and maintain good air quality.
