Taiwan’s green energy subsidies project reduced 380,000 tons of carbon emissions
The market received over 1 million applications filed since February 2023.
The 2023 green appliances subsidies project received over 1 million applications, resulting in the reduction of 760 million kWh of residential electricity consumption.
According to the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), the project also helped cut 386,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
As of date, the completion rate is over 75%, with the project quota having 425,000 appliances.
The Energy Administration told applicants to ensure all supplemental documents (proof of identity, bankbook, prior electricity bill, a receipt that includes product model number and sales details, warranty card, and proof of completed recycling from the EPA) meet the requirements before submission so to avoid possible resubmission of documents.
“For instance, documents should be scanned or photocopied clearly, the warranty card is for outdoor unit rather than indoor unit, and the address of the electricity bill should be where the appliance is installed,” read the statement.
