Pacific Green Resources, the first company to sign a renewable energy contract with GPA, has submitted their request with GPA.
Guam – The first company to sign a contract with the Guam Power Authority to provide renewable energy to Guam is now asking for an extension on their wind energy project.
Pacific Green Resources, the first company to sign a renewable energy contract with GPA, has submitted their request with GPA. General Manager John Benavente could not say how long the extension is for or whether or not GPA will grant the request. PNC originally reported back in august, shortly before the explosions of Cabras 3 and 4, that PRG treasurer Donald Wen would be creating a presentation for gpa to ask for an extension on it’s wind energy project in Dan Dan. At the time, CCU Commissioner Joey Duenas said he did not know that PGR was planning on extending their timeline and that he quote “found it hard to believe that they just now discovered they had a problem.” Back in 2013, PGR signed a 25 year public private partnership with GPA to provide wind and solar energy. GPA GM John benavente says, ultimately, it depends on the reason PGR gives for their request.
“It all depends what are the merits of the case, what caused the delays, like anything else is there a significant benefit to the authority for granting this extension, did we cause delays or anything like that,” said Benavente.
Benevente says that GPA will review a presentation by PGR and then take its recommendations to the CCU on whether or not the extension will be granted.
