Less than a decade ago, the villages in Babeldaob and the
outer states of the Republic had limited hours of electricity and water. As the
integration of technology into Palauan society increased the demand for the
electricity and water, PPUC invested millions into the utilities
infrastructure, providing access to electricity and water and 24-hour service
to Palauan communities from Kayangel State all the way to Angaur State. As the
local population continues to spread throughout Babeldaob, PPUC must continue
to increase the utilities infrastructure to accommodate the demand. As
continued reliability of service to our customers remains a priority, quick
response to emergencies lessens the inconvenience of power and water outages.
Moreover, PPUC recognizes the importance of conservation.
As Palau is an island nation whose economic and social well-being is reliant on
a sustainable way of life, we encourage our customers to conserve energy and
water whenever possible. Innovation today, for a cleaner tomorrow, PPUC will
soon begin to research and implement alternative renewable and cost efficient
energy sources, such as solar and hydro power, and thereby reflecting the
savings back to our customers. Additionally,
PPUC has begun researching on ways to provide cost effective clean water for
all its customers.
