Kepco will start providing electricity in October 2022 after building a power plant. Korean builder Hyundai Engineering is set to construct a 200-megawatt combined cycle power plant in the US island territory in August 2020. The commercial operation of the plant will start two years later.

A special purpose company in which Kepco holds a 60 percent stake, with the rest held by its wholly owned subsidiary Korea East West Power Co., will take charge of the project.
With the 25-year project, the two companies will secure $2.06 billion income by operating the plant and transferring electricity to the Guam Power Authority, the company said.
