Guam - The Public Utilities Commission has a full agenda for its meeting on Wednesday night. Among the items up for discussion: the Guam Power Authority's review and approval of a proposed $2.5 million settlement with the Department of Administration for the payment in lieu of taxes mandate.
The Commission is also expected to ratify the chair's approval to increase the Levelized Energy Adjustment Clause by 13%. The administrative law judge is also expected to give his report whether rates would need to be raised if GWA complies with Public Law 30-145 and remits $20 million to the General Fund. It's an issue currently under litigation.
The PUC is scheduled to meet Wednesday night at the GCIC Building in Hagatna.
