EPA probed over online disclosure of meters

Guam - Senator Tom Ada wants to know why the Guam Environmental Protection Agency isn't following the law - specifically the Guam Energy Office, which falls under the agency's purview.  According to local statute, the local agency is supposed to post on its web site the list of all Government of Guam meters reflecting their consumption rates.   

The law takes it another step further, requiring the Energy Office to provide benchmarks and recommendations for energy savings alternatives. The agency was supposed to implement the law back in January.  Sen. Ada said, "We're following up on it because even they were able to cut back 10% on their consumption that could translate to maybe around $5 million government-wide and that significant sum today when you have budget that's very limited."

Guam EPA's Lorilee Crisostomo in response says they are in compliance, but it takes time to gather the all the required information needed from GovGuam agencies.
