Guam - A representative from the U.S. Energy Office is on Guam to monitor the government's compliance with a federal grant for weatherizing low-income homes. The money provides for the Guam Energy Office to provide energy-efficient appliances to those in the community who cannot afford to purchase those items.
Representative Carolyn Gates says the office comes out twice a year to review what's being done with the federal funds, and told KUAM News, "They've been doing quite a few houses. They're doing a good job in things like providing energy efficient appliances like refrigerators, light bulbs and lighting, so those are the main things. The base load measures that we're providing to homes."
Gates says they are hoping to reach out to more homes and allow more people to avail of the resources that the federal money is providing. For more information you can contact the Guam Energy Office.
