Guam - At one point in time, you may have had a prepaid phone or how about a phone card, well imagine pre-paying for your electricity. The Guam Power Authority plans to roll out that service in the future.

Spokesman Art Perez said, "Instead of being billed for electricity a month later and won't really able to monitor utility consumption this way you can actually see it per day and forward your payments based on what your cash flow is, so let's see, you only have fifty days you pay by phone, that will carry you for the next few days until pay day until you're better able to deposit more Money into your account. Pay as you go."

According to Perez, the prepaid service was launched as a pilot project last year. Currently GPA is fine tuning the program with a few customers. A full roll timeframe has not yet been identified. GPA however presented their pre-paid services at today's UOG Center for Island Sustainability Conference.
