feis proposes 740m for guam infrastructure
FEIS proposes $740M for Guam Infrastructure

From the start, CCU, GPA and GWA Position:

Civilian ratepayers should be shielded from direct and indirect cost impacts resulting from the proposed buildup.

DoD remains a GPA customer

The northern aquifer and our environment shall be protected for the long term.

Mandatory shared responsibility

The existing GWA NWWTP shall be the only WW plant over the aquifer

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

feis proposes 740m for guam infrastructure1
FEIS proposes $740M for Guam Infrastructure

In 2006: NO commitments to fund off-base civilian infrastructure.

Since 2006, we have engaged in hundreds of hours of meetings and extensive exchange of data to determine best solutions, estimated costs and “who pays”.

feis proposes 740m for guam infrastructure2
FEIS proposes $740M for Guam Infrastructure

Today, FEIS “preferred alternatives”:

Provide $740 Million for water, wastewater and power improvements to serve civilian and military needs,

AT NO CAPITAL COSTS TO CIVILIAN RATEPAYERS.

DOD WILL PAY 100% OF THESE COSTS!

unresolved issues remain
Unresolved Issues Remain
  • Though DoD will be responsible for payments, how funding assistance will be provided to GPA/GWA is still being determined.
    • First meetings w/ Japan Bank for Intl. Cooperation (JBIC) held earlier this month.
    • Direct loans or grants, or indirect through Special Purpose Entities (SPEs) or other types of Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP)?
  • WHETHER FUNDING COMES FROM JAPAN, DOD OR THE US GOVT., OUR POSITION IS CLEAR:
    • CIVILIAN RATEPAYERS WILL NOT BE BURDENED BY CAPITAL COSTS RELATED TO THE BUILDUP.
feis power impacts summary
FEIS: Power Impacts Summary

FEIS Identifies ~$160 million in available funding for the power infrastructure:

  • CT upgrade:
        • 25% or ~ $37 million
  • T&D:
        • 75% or ~ $122 million

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

feis power demand
FEIS: Power Demand

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

  • Load requirements for Marine Corps relocation and other Department of Defense (DOD) upgrades
    • 70 Megawatt (MW) Total Additional Demand
      • 30 MW DOD Firm Load (24/7)
      • 40 MW DOD Transient Load (Intermittent)
  • DOD remains a GPA customer
  • New GPA/Navy Utility Services Agreement (USA)
    • Negotiations have started
there is enough power generation capacity
THERE IS ENOUGH POWER GENERATION CAPACITY

GPA Generation Capacity: 552 MW

Current Peak: 272 MW

Peak after Build Up: 342 MW (est)

Excess Generation Capacity after build up: = 210 MW

GPA & DOD agree there is sufficient generation capacity to support the build up

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

slide11

Preferred Alternative

Recondition up to 5 existing GPA permitted facilities to provide peaking power/reserve capacity

Yigo, 2 @ Dededo, Marbo, Macheche

FEIS states “Planning indicates that new power generation capacity would not be required to meet the planned demand increase.”(Vol 6, 2-9)

No Additional Long Term Alternatives - All other power alternatives in the DEIS to address additional load and capacity were “deemed unnecessary”(Vol 6, 2-3)

“This showed that adequate power would be fairly easily provided in time to accommodate the proposed military relocation.”(Vol 6, 2-3)

FEIS: Generation

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

generation solutions
GENERATION SOLUTIONS

GPA & DOD agree that 3 GPA CT’s should be refurbished to support construction phase

Estimated at $37 million (paid by DOD)

CT’s located at Dededo & Yigo (~60 MW)

Start by 2012

Navy has completed assessment for refurbishment of 5 CT’s

DOD to pay 100% of $37 million cost to refurbish CT’s

All existing civilian ratepayers will benefit from this improvement in generation reliability

FEIS: Renewable Energy

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

alternative energy fuel diversification ongoing discussions
Alternative Energy & Fuel Diversification - Ongoing Discussions

GPA is pursuing 80MW of renewable energy sources, primarily from wind and solar

GPA and DOD have been working collaboratively on renewable efforts

GPA will not support renewable power generation solutions that only serve on-base needs. All renewable generation benefits must be shared with the entire island grid via GPA

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

T&D System Upgrades and new T&D Infrastructure needed to mitigate direct, indirect, and induced impacts of Build Up

DOD remains a transmission level customer of GPA

Agreement reached between DoD & GPA on $122 million of T&D projects (transmission lines and substations) directly related to Build Up

FEIS:

Transmission & Distribution

unresolved issues generation new base load
Unresolved IssuesGENERATION – New Base Load

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

To insure continued generation reliability, GPA believes buildup accelerates the need for the next base load generator from 2022 to 2017

GPA believes DOD should pay for induced impacts caused by accelerating the need for the new base load

GPA and DOD have yet to determine and agree on induced impact

new base load buildup accelerates need from 2022 to 2017
New Base Load: Buildup accelerates need from 2022 to 2017
  • 60 MW Base Load requirement
  • $150 million for conventional oil fired
    • $120 million for the plant + $30 million for additional fuel storage
  • $300 million for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) system (includes fuel storage)

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

unresolved issues t d and funding sources
Unresolved Issues T&D and Funding Sources

GPA is still concerned about other indirect impacts on T&D assets in the civilian sector caused by the buildup

$30 million of T&D projects necessary to mitigate indirect impacts of the Build Up have been estimated

Responsibility of costs related to mitigating these impacts on T&D assets have yet to be determined

Other cost requirements to resolve:

aquifer yield
Aquifer Yield

Aquifer can yield 80 million gallons/day (MGD)1

Peak during construction surge is 53 MGD

Post construction (base open) will be less

Current professional consensus; sufficient water to meet buildup growth

1 – Theoretical Sustainable Yield from 1992 Groundwater Study by Barrett/Mink. 2009 Review by UOG-WERI. Concurred by GWA, DoD, GEPA.

feis protecting the aquifer
FEIS: Protecting the Aquifer

Parties will cooperate in all aspects of water resource development on Guam to ensure the long term and sustainable management of the Northern Guam Lens Aquifer (NGLA).

Updated comprehensive study of the Aquifer funded by DoD is underway, led by UOG/WERI and supported by USGS, USEPA, DoD, GEPA and GWA.

feis water supply solution
FEIS: Water Supply Solution
  • $165 million for a new northern water system of wells, treatment, transmission and distribution assets.
    • DOD WILL PAY 100% OF THESE COSTS
  • The new northern system will be inter-connected to the existing GWA and DoD systems so that the three systems can eventually work as an integrated whole.

SUMMARY OF UTILITY ISSUES

FACING BUILDUP

GPA/GWA FINAL EIS

summary
Summary

DOD/US Govt. should pay for its impact, direct and indirect.

$740 million has been proposed to upgrade Guam utility infrastructure at no cost to the people of Guam.

Hold Fed. Officials to their words of “One Guam”, “Green Guam” and that “the buildup cannot be a burden to the people of Guam”.

If funded in a sufficient and timely manner, the “preferred solutions” as summarized in the FEIS are achievable and can provide benefits for existing and future utility customers.

If insufficient funding is provided in an untimely manner, Guam utilities will not be able to permit the construction of facilities that are needed to commence the buildup (e.g. worker housing).

Much work remains to address unresolved issues.
