GLUC to discuss UOG wind turbine variance

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Land Use Commission is scheduled to take up the University of Guam's revised request for a zone variance this week. UOG's Center for Island Sustainability is seeking the variance for its wind turbine project.  Instead of installing two wind turbine towers that was opposed by many residents in the area, the university has revised its plans to install a smaller 70-foot tower. 

The university contends the wind turbine will assist with research and data collection on how effective systems like these would be for the island.  Over the last few weeks, the Land Use Commission has been researching and addressing legal issues related to zoning issues. 

The GLUC is set to meet on Thursday at the Department of Land Management conference room.
