Overview IRP
The Guam Power Authority's (GPA) 2008 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is an open dialogue between the Authority and its stakeholders to determine the best strategies for the type, amount and timing of new resource acquisitions to meet future electrical loads.  New resource candidates will include both supply-side, renewable, and demand-side options.
