GPA: Eco-consciousness not cheap

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Going green comes at a cost.  That was the message from Guam Power Authority General Manager Joaquin Flores, who presented his assessment about the cost of implementing renewables to an audience of policy makers and business community representatives at the University of Guam today.

Flores says going green might increase monthly power bills slightly, but that it would yield economic opportunities as well.  "You need to consider job creation, fuel savings, you need to consider reduction of our carbon footprint and overall there is a cleaner environment when you do that. It's not just that, what I tried to do is to engage the community to tell GPA what direction we should take," he explained.
