P3 Authority: PREPA T&D deal should remain secret
By The Star Staff
Puerto Rico’s Private Public Partnership (P3) Authority insists that the contract that would put the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s (PREPA) transmission and distribution (T&D) system under private management should remain confidential until it is a done deal.
The P3 Authority made its remarks in a document filed with the Puerto Rico Energy Bureau (PREB) on Wednesday in which it opposed a prior petition from the Electrical Industry and Irrigation Workers Union (UTIER by its Spanish acronym) to have access to the contract. The UTIER made the request earlier this week after learning the P3 Authority had on May 18 sought a certificate of energy compliance for the contract.
