SOLAR ENERGY COMING TO GFA

PRESS RELEASE – Guam Football Association will be embarking on a mission to continue its efforts to go green with Micronesia’s largest solar energy project to date, beginning with an official contract signing ceremony 11 a.m. Wednesday at the GFA National Training Center conference room. The solar energy project, with a price tag of over $750,000, is the first of GFA’s Income Generating Program projects with FIFA, and will entail the installation and maintenance of solar panels along the rooftop of the GFA headquarters in Harmon.

Once the project is complete, the solar energy collected from the panels will be used to effectively roll back the facility’s electrical meter during the day and help power day-to-day operations in the GFA main office, as well as lights for nighttime games and activities. The GFA is expected to save much-needed funds through the initiative, as well as help protect Guam’s natural resources through this environmentally friendly project. The project will be funded through a joint partnership with FIFA, the Government of Guam and GFA, said GFA president Richard Lai.

FIFA Development Officer Domeka Garamendi, as well as representatives from Green Energy Solutions, Inc., a local company, will join GFA executives at the contract-signing ceremony. The Green Energy Solutions, Inc. team also will be providing detailed information including specifics on the solar panels, artist rendered images of the project, and total cost breakdown.
