$90M IDB loan slated for Jamaica energy projects

Jamaica says it will receive a $90 million loan from the Inter-American Development Bank to help drive down energy costs.
Energy and Mining Minster Clive Mullings says an initial $20 million will be used to replace some of the hydrocarbons used in the island's refrigerators and air conditioning units.
He said another $1.2 million will be used partly to promote awareness about energy-saving measures.
The government issued a statement Friday about the loan.
