Pohnpei Utilities Corporation

Pohnpei Utilities Corporation (PUC) is established as a public corporation or an autonomous state enterprise. It was originally created on February 14, 1991, by Pohnpei State Law 2L-179-91. The original law granted the Corporation with functions and responsibilities to promote the development and improvement of the power (energy) facility and services to the State of Pohnpei. The law was further amended in 1993 with the functions and responsibility to include in the mandate of the Corporation to own, operate and maintain the Pohnpei State Central (Kolonia) Water Supply System and Sewerage System. The affairs of the Corporation are managed by a seven-member Board, appointed by the Governor to four-year terms. Daily operations of the Corporation are delegated to a General Manager/CEO, who is selected by the Board of Directors. During its 27-years existence, the Pohnpei Utilities Corporation has made a major contribution to the economic development of Pohnpei State, through the power, water, and wastewater services. The utility services of the PUC play a crucial role in the economic development of the state of Pohnpei. The PUC is in need to provide an analysis of its utilities operating environment, its internal strengths and weaknesses and, in the context of these analysis, to formulate a plan of action to enable the Corporation to be more effective in coping with the increasing challenges of being a self-financing corporation while continuing to fulfill its main function of improving and providing the utility services for Pohnpei.
