Guam - The Guam Power Authority has more than double the island's current peak demand. That's according to the transition paper for the island's infrastructure. The report states that GPA will get $160 million from the government of Japan by April of this year for infrastructure improvements as part of the buildup.
But with places like the Agana Shopping Center using self-sustaining generating power and the U.S. Naval Base having a solar panel farm, the document points out that there will be definite percentage reductions in revenue in the future from the military and other large users if the issue is not addressed.
The report recommends support for affordable renewable energy projects, that GPA provide co-generation and other energy efficiency services to large users, and ensure all GovGuam power bills are paid.
