Guam - The Guam Power Authority is launching its prepaid power option for Guam residents tomorrow at the UOG Sustainability Conference. The program will allow residents to purchase prepaid power in increments, similar to buying a prepaid phone card.
Residents must have the smart meter and be signed up with the My Energy Program in order to take advantage of the new feature. GPA spokesperson Art Perez said, "Some of the benefits no return item fees no deposits no late charges because you really pay as you go so let's say if you deposit one hundred dollars on your prepaid account on your prepaid you can set up thresholds."
Once you are nearing that threshold an alert notice will be sent letting you know you are coming to the end of your credit. Additional credit can then be applied over the telephone, internet or at a GPA location.
