Potential for power outages throughout Guam tonight

The following is news from the Guam Power Authority:
The Guam Power Authority advises customers of possible rotating outages from 6 p.m. through 9 p.m. today. Two (2) of the island’s four (4) baseload power plants are offline, reducing the total power generation capacity to 242 megawatts. GPA also noted a significant increase in power demand today compared to the same time yesterday, likely from dry weather and hotter temperatures.
Cabras Unit No. 1, a 47-year-old plant, is undergoing emergency repairs to its air preheater and is expected to return to service on Thursday, May 26, 2022. Another base load Piti Unit No. 8 experienced an emergency outage yesterday and is not expected to return to service until late tonight.
“We are making every effort to provide sufficient power supply to meet customer demands. However, if there is a shortage of generation capacity tonight, GPA will, as a last resort to maintain grid stability, implement rotating outages lasting up to 1-hour,” stated Melinda C. Mafnas, P.E., Assistant General Manager, Operations. GPA recognizes that power outages are inconvenient and may create challenges for its customers. “We ask for your patience and kindly request that all customers conserve power, especially during peak demand from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.,” added Mafnas.
The schedule below represents a list of potentially affected areas. This schedule is subject to change based on generation capacity and power demand.
