GPA to hold outreach meeting on net metering proposals

275
According to GPA, the number of under-frequency automatic load shedding due to solar PV systems has increased substantially over the past few years and uncontrolled solar PV energy has significantly degraded system reliability.

The Guam Power Authority is looking at requiring all future net metering customers to have battery storage with their systems.

GPA is also looking at ending the payment or carryover of excess net metering credits by its customers.

These proposals are laid out in two GPA resolutions awaiting approval of the Consolidated Commission on Utilities.

According to GPA, the number of under-frequency automatic load shedding due to solar PV systems has increased substantially over the past few years and uncontrolled solar PV energy has significantly degraded system reliability.

GPA also says it cannot continue to add intermittent energy production into the grid without requiring all future customer-owned solar and wind turbine systems to also have frequency control capability or Energy Storage Systems.

GPA is providing its stakeholders a chance to voice out their thoughts on the two proposals during an outreach meeting tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. at the CCU Conference Room, 3rd Floor of the Gloria B. Nelson Public Service Building in Mangilao.
