Guam - It was a bittersweet day for the Guam Power Authority as the agency celebrates $76 million of improvements on the horizon while at the same time bidding farewell to long time general manager Joaquin Flores. He has been with GPA for over three decades and today he retired.

"I just hope that my contributions over the last 32 years have set a new standards that people can see there's no turning back especially with customer issues dealing with customer service," he said. "It's all about being helpful being competent and capable of doing our jobs to serve the customer being resourceful and trustworthy all of that has to come together especially when prices are so high and people are not happy with the electricity prices but we got to make a difference with the people aspect of how we contribute to the community."

Flores said he's sad to leave, he plans on enjoying the moment, but eventually hopes to get back into the workforce. Meanwhile GPA, GEDA and the Consolidated Commission on Utilities closed $76 million of revenue bonds. The money will be used to fund energy storage systems, improvements and the initial funding of GPA's proposed energy conversion plan.
