Taijeron crafts GPA review legislation

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Senator Mana Silva Taijeron introduced legislation that would require the Guam Power Authority to conduct a review of customer accounts that are transferred from a residential service rate schedule to a costlier rate schedule. Bill 233 would mandate GPA to perform a review every three months of the accounts that have been transferred as a result of higher power consumption.

Senator Taijeron states the current policy for customer accounts transferred to a new rate remain for at least 12 months, however the measure would change that timeline to no more than three months.

Taijeron states, "It isn't right to keep customers on a higher rate for an entire year without fully knowing their average monthly consumption. With the recent decision to raise power rates, it's important that we find ways to help our residents cope with these increases."
