Thinking in terms of protection our environment, especially on our island with limited land area is especially important.
In terms of how to improve/decrease the emissions from our power plant on Guam the alternatives are not as obvious. In the mainland US there is a huge supply of Natural Gas being discovered and tapped which is in such abundant supply that the price is very low. There are companies working on being able to export this very clean natural resource as Liquid Natural Gas (LNG). It might be in our best interest as an Island community to look into importing LNG as a much cleaner and possibly lower cost alternative to oil based fuels.
One company that is actively working on building export facilities is Chennier Energy based out of Louisiana I believe.
I'm sure there are others but Chennier has taken the initiative to get to the front of the pack in it's development of Liquifaction and export facilities.
