Guam - Brace yourselves: the cost to run the air conditioner in your house and other electrical items is going to cost you more beginning next Monday. Although the Public Utilities Commission didn't have a quorum to meet on Monday night, chairperson Dr. Jeff Johnson utilized a provision provided in law that allows one commissioner to act on behalf of the entire membership and approved the 18% increase to the Levelized Energy Adjustment Clause. 

PUC legal counsel Fred Horecky says had the Commission waited until the August 10 meeting, it would have cost more money to re-engage the consultants to redo the numbers. The increase equates to about $31 more a month for residential customers.  The LEAC will run from August 1 to January 31 of next year. 

GPA can file its next LEAC adjustment by December 15.
