In recent years, Taichung Power Plant has continued to invest in a large number of environmental improvement projects, and conducting output curtailment due to air quality concerns, shutting down the units due to environmental concerns, and implementing additional coal-fired power reduction measures, coal reduction and emission reduction have achieved considerable results.

Compared with 2014, the coal consumption of Taichung Power Plant in 2019 has been reduced by nearly 6 million tons, and air pollution emissions have also been reduced by more than 50%.

In the future, Taichung Power Plant will add 2 gas-fired units and select 6 units with the best performance from 10 coal-fired units to operate, and the remaining units will be used as backup.
 

In this way, not only can air pollution emissions be reduced by another 50%, it can also support the rapid growth of electricity consumption in central Taiwan and support the development of renewable energy.

The Taichung Power Plant's new gas-fired unit plan has passed the Environmental Impact Assessment. Please support Taiwan Power Company to fully promote this plan to meet everyone's expectations for coal reduction and emission reduction.
