Joaquin Flores says GPA is running lean

The Guam Power Authority is operating with minimum resources required to serve the current demand - that's the word from utility agency General Manager Joaquin Flores as he presented the findings of a recent audit on the agency at today's general meeting of the Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association.

Flores said GPA is running lean in regards to personnel and financial resources, commenting, "And as a result of that, their conclusion also said that our service levels were very lean and if the expectation was that we were to cut significantly from GPA, its resources, and then service, would suffer."

That audit was part of the second phase of GPA's push for approval for raising the base rate.  The agency plans to file that petition at the end of the month.  If the Public Utilities Commission approves it, ratepayers can expect to see their overall bills raise about 2% as soon as December.
