Guam - The Consolidated Commission on Utilities will be hosting a work session on Monday focusing on moving away from the old generators to a new generation resource which will allow them to burn more efficient and cleaner fuels. According to GPA spokesperson Art Perez, this means that they intend to move towards liquid natural gas and renewables which will provide saving for rate payers. As well as put GPA in compliance with the Clean Air Act. Later that evening the procurement of the new generation resources will go before the CCU for approval if approved it will then be subject to the Public Utilities Commission's approval.

This would allow Guam to burn more efficient, cleaner fuels which are more cost effective.
