Guam - The Guam Power Authority will be defending its $32 million smart grid project that they had intended on launching this month. On Monday the Legislative Committee on Transportation and Utilities will hold an informational hearing to address public concerns regarding smart meters.
Some residents have expressed concerns with the new meters regarding privacy, billing and health related issues.
GPA has touted that the new devices will provide accurate electricity consumption for residents. Senator Tom Ada had asked the utility agency to stall the project temporarily until GPA provides customers with more information.
The informational hearing is set for Monday at 6pm.
