GUAM: Power update

Power update from Guam Power Authority as of 11:30 am, Thursday, May 25, 2023:
“GPA crews and engineers are assessing damage to the grid. Once the assessment is done, we will have a better idea of the restoration time frame. There is no doubt that we have our work cut out but we are no stranger to these challenges. We will use our manpower, inventory, mutual aid assistance, resources, etc. to ensure the priority areas are restored (critical infrastructure). We also have built redundancies into the system. We will use those redundancies for faster restoration.”
– Tricee Limtiaco, Assistant General Manager for Administration

    Not to speak ill of the many talented field crews working nonstop around the island, I give my prayers, my thanks, and my support! But! If there has a collection of institutionalized history, it will point to this: In the absences of typhoons over time, overgrowth of trees that encroach electrical hotspots are not trimmed or removed! This should have been a standard protocol in times of typhoon lulls. An assessment of potential key electricity generating assets be reinforced and protected as not to be easily damaged during a typhoon. Common sense should prevail over doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. In the military it is called PMCS (preventive maintenance, checks, and services)
