PPUC Celebrates its Fifth Year Anniversary with a Walkathon

Koror, Palau- Saturday, June 09, 2018, over a hundred participants walked and ran PPUC's Fifth Year Anniversary Walkathon. In conjunction with Presidential Proclamation 18-227 "Year of Good Health," this year's anniversary celebration theme was "Quality Utilities for Good Health." Kione Isechal, PPUC's CEO/GM in his short message to the participants, emphasized PPUC"s dedication to provide quality utility service which greatly contribute to good health. 


During this event, members of the Ministry of Health from the Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) department were available to conduct mini health screening that consisted of weighing in- and Body Mass Index (BMI) measuring for those who were interested. An effort to promote health awareness and hopefully engage participants to continue to better their health and maintain a healthy lifestyle. 


The event concluded with a raffle drawing, giving away a variety of energy saving and water conservation products reminding everyone that power and water conservation remains our responsibility and should be a continued effort. 


PPUC would like to offer this Press Release as a clarification to the newspaper article citing the
possibility of free electricity to particular customers as a result of this project.

The UAE financed project for the construction of a Solar PV plant for Peleliu and Angaur is
expected to assist PPUC with the high cost of diesel for the outlying states operations. PPUC
spends almost $700,000 annually in diesel costs to the outlying states power plants. This new PV
system is expected to trim these fuel expenses and may eventually lead to reduced electricity costs
and savings for all of PPUC’s customers and not one particular group.

RPPL 9-4 requires a uniform electricity tariff to all consumers and no special treatment to any
particular customer class. The UAE project is anticipated to provide direct benefits to all of
PPUC’s utility customers in the Republic of Palau.
