(Fadian, Mangilao) – GPA announces that it will implement brief rotating outages from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, March 25, 2023 due to limited generation capacity. Piti Units 8 & 9, two of the island’s four baseload power plants, are offline for emergency repairs to fuel injectors, reducing the total power generation capacity to approximately 219 megawatts.

Emergency repairs on both baseload plants are expected to be completed by this weekend.

The load shedding schedule, attached, is posted on GPA’s website and social media pages including Instagram and Facebook. It should be noted that a load shedding schedule is provided to assist customers to plan in case an outage may occur but does not mean a power interruption is imminent.
