Guam - Hoping to cut down on spending, the Government of Guam launched its new energy initiative this afternoon. Governor Eddie Calvo says this will allow his council of economic advisors to work with all stakeholders to implement the government wide energy conservation effort. Agencies such as the Department of Education said they are developing energy saving themes in their curriculum to help students learn how they can save energy at home as well as in the classroom.

The airport also shared its plans to invest in more energy efficient equipment to cut costs, while the Guam Power Authority is working to identify more renewable energy resources.

Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio said, "As this community and this government starts to make the transition and use these energy audits to look at where we might be able to save money, where we are leaking air conditioning, where we are using unnecessary lighting, we will start to realized savings and these savings can be used in more important things like education and of course public safety."

Officials are also working to retrofit several public sector agencies which facilities they say have put a burden on the General Fund due to high energy costs.
