In his weekly address, Governor Eddie Calvo said he would reach out to GPA to help with the authority’s fledgling generation ability. 

Guam – Good news for the Guam Power Authority, Cabras 2 is back online and General Manager John Benavente says GPA should meet peak demand, thus ending the most recent round of tentative load shedding schedules.

 

Benavente says Cabras 2 was brought online this morning but with limitations. The recently overhauled generator will be generating 17 MW over the next 24 hours. Benavente says the unit is expected to be operating at full power within the next few days. The unit recently experienced an overhaul that would boost the base load generators ability to 66 MW. Benavente adds that although Cabras is back online, temes is still down and without a firm recovery date. In his weekly address, Governor Eddie Calvo said he would reach out to GPA to help with the authority’s fledgling generation ability. Calvo says he will contact GPD to have officers immediately respond to intersections that lose traffic lights due to power outages. Additionally, the port authority of Guam became the latest agency to join GPA’s interruptible load program as they sent out a press release indicating the Port authority went offline Friday to help during peak hours by using brand new generators, set up as part of a milestone project.
