Guam - A plan for our island's power system has been adopted by the Consolidated Commission on Utilities to address recent air quality standard regulations set by US Environmental Protection Agency. CCU chairperson Joseph Duenas says the plan to address two regulations set by USEPA must be submitted by January 30th, first dealing with recipricol internal combustion engines. He says that USEPA set a compliance date for May 2013 in which the GPA was not able to comply in getting generators 3, 4, 8 and 9 up to standard. The second regulation is effective April of this year and focuses on electric generating units this includes Cabras 1 and 2 and Tanguissan 1 and 2. He says the first step in their plan is retiring Tanguissan 1 and 2. As for Cabras they plan to build three new combined cycle units which will generate 180 megawatts of power and result in 25 percent more fuel efficiency. He adds that the plan must still be approved by the PUC and USEPA.
