Guam wind facility unlikely to be completed

Renewable energy company Pacific Green Resources LLC is running out of time to provide the Guam Power Authority with about 10 megawatts of wind energy. The company entered into a contract with GPA in March 2013 to develop a wind facility that would supply renewable energy to the utility for 20 years. However, with little progress made on the project, Consolidated Commission on Utilities Chairman Joey Duenas said it now seems unlikely the company can fulfill its contractual obligations. “We . . .

CCU chairman skeptical about wind turbine project

As the Guam Power Authority expands it renewable energy portfolio with wind and solar capabilities, Consolidated Commission on Utilities chairman Joseph Duenas has doubts about the viability of a wind turbine project. He told KUAM News “They haven’t started construction or any kind of work on the project and the project is supposed to be completed in eight months.” The wind turbine project is supposed to generate roughly 10 megawatts of power in Windward Hills and although the project is . . .

Wind power project in doubt

A proposed project to build a 9.4-megawatt wind power plant might fail to meet a goal to begin supplying power to Guam Power Authority in March next year, a utilities commission official said recently. Consolidated Commission on Utilities Chairman Joey Duenas said he doubts that a wind-powered power plant would work on the island at all. In 2013, Pacific Green Resources entered into an agreement with GPA to produce 9.4 megawatts of wind power and 5 megawatts of solar power . . . Complete story »

CCU approves $200K for wind-turbine project

The Consolidated Commission on Utilities voted Tuesday night to approve several Guam Power Authority projects. GPA will be required to pay $200,000 for a wind-turbine tower project that received $1.5 million in federal grant funds. The $1.5 million will cover building costs, but won’t cover connecting the tower to the island’s power system. “The additional $200,000 from GPA will cover connecting (the tower) to the transmission line that is currently located on the road fronting the property in Cotal,” said . . .

Wind turbine requires rezoning

After six years, a federally funded wind turbine tower is months away from being built. The plan is to build one 233-foot-tall windmill tower in Yona, which will require a zoning variance to allow for the structure’s height. The Guam Land Use Commission is scheduled to hear that request this afternoon. The $1.5 million project is unrelated to the $294 million wind farm in Inarajan, which will build as many as 34 windmill towers. The Guam Power Authority last year . . . Complete story »

GLUC approves UOG wind turbine project

Guam – After receiving testimony on the project for the past few months, the GLUC unanimously voted to approve the University of Guam’s zone variance request for its wind turbine project. The request proposed that instead of installing its initial two wind turbine towers, it would only install a smaller 70′ tower in UOG’s Dean’s Circle near House 32. UOG was granted a three-year permit in which for every year they must report back to the GLUC for approval and . . . Complete story »
