Quick Facts

  • Guam, with no conventional energy resources, relies on petroleum products shipped in by tanker and wind and solar resources that are used to generate electricity.
  • Electricity use is increasing on Guam, and the island's sole power utility exceeded 50,000 customers for the first time in 2016.
  • The U.S. military accounts for one-fifth of the Guam Power Authority's electricity sales.
  • Guam's first commercial solar farm, the 25.6-megawatt Dandan facility, was completed in October 2015, and the U.S. Navy agreed in mid-2017 to lease sites where 40 megawatts of additional solar power will be installed.
  • Guam allows net metering, and an increasing number of customers are installing solar photovoltaic panels. As of early 2016, nearly 9 megawatts of distributed solar power was connected to Guam's grid.
