Benavente says that the implementation of phase i renewables has confirmed for GPA that battery storage must be included in any further renewable energy project bids moving forward.

Guam – After two years, multiple delays, and almost losing a valuable tax credit, the Guam power authority has decided to cancel phase II of its renewable energy project.

 

 

 

 

 

With GPA’s wind energy project with pacific green resources in limbo as well, GPA general manager John Benavente recommended to CCU commissioners that phase ii of its renewable energy project be cancelled and re-bid out to include battery storage as part of the bidding process. This comes after Benavente revealed to CCU commissioners that NRG, the company currently running GPA’s Phase I renewable energy project, withdrew their bid from phase II. NRG was the lowest responsible bidder. Benavente says that the power authority would be able to expeditiously issue a re-bid within six months.
