Vice Speaker Telena Nelson’s bill that would allow the Guam Department of Education to install solar power panels on the island’s public schools in order to cut down on their power bill. She said her Bill 196 could cut that in half and the savings could be used to provide much-needed capital improvement funding for the schools. However, the Guam Power Authority has raised objections, warning that if the schools went solar, that would put an added burden on all other ratepayers who have to pick up the added cost of maintaining the transmission grid to the schools on rainy days or when it’s dark.
