It is questioned that the existing 10 coal-fired units at the Taichung Power Plant will become 12 units operating at full capacity at the same time after adding 2 gas-fired units in 2025?

In fact, after two gas-fired units come online, there will be four coal-fired units will converted into standby units. Only when (1) in spring and summer (non-air pollution season); (2) AQI is less than 100; (3) the power reserve capacity rate is less than 8%, etc., the standby units will be enabled one by one, and only a maximum of two can be enabled, acting as the role of powered fire brigade.

In the future, the emissions of pollutants from Taichung power plants will be reduced by 60% to 70%. Pragmatically reduce carbon emissions, and take into account both power supply and environmental protection.
