According to Taipei Times, more than 13,000 people have signed up for this year’s “green” power purchase program launched by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, exceeding the goal of 10,000, the ministry said.

As of Thursday, a total of 13,251 institutional and individual customers had signed up for the program, surpassing the more than 7,000 who did so last year, when the goal was 4,000 subscriptions.
