Guam - Since 2003, the Guam Power Authority has made over $28 million dollars in considerable investments to increase the efficiency of Cabras Baseload Units 1 and 2. A working session with the Consolidated Commission on Utilities is scheduled to take place this evening where GPA presented its findings and recommendations of the McHale Report.

GPA spokesman Art Perez said, "GPA is the one that's commissioned this report to improve availability and now we can focus on efficiency, and a lot of what we have planned going forward and investments we have made that addressed some of these issues, but there's still more that needs to be done."

GPA is also looking at reducing the amount of fuel costs, containing operating expenditures and offering cheaper delivery of power to ratepayers. The report is prepared by McHale and Associates, a third-party consultant, and will be used as a guide to operate the plant with a high level of availability with possible implementation in Janaury next year.
