The New Taipei City Public Works Bureau has put forward the “Replacement Subsidy Plan for the Lighting Replacement of Indoor Parking Lots in Multi-unit Residential Buildings” in 107. If the basement lamps in the community are old, they should be replaced with energy-saving lamps according to regulations. The luminous efficiency of LED bulbs must meet the standard and must have automatic switching, dimming or timing control, etc., communities with more than 500 households can receive a subsidy of up to 800,000 RMB.
If the lamp equipment in the basement garage of the community is old, the community can apply for subsidies from the New Taipei City Works Bureau when replacing the lamps. The Works Bureau emphasized that the replacement lamps must have energy-saving and point-saving labels, and must be “inductive” LED lamps with a luminous efficiency greater than 120 (lm/w); the subsidy amount can account for up to half of the total amount, and the number of community households is not Up to 200, the maximum limit is 200,000, between 200 and 500 households, the upper limit is 400,000, and the upper limit is 800,000 for communities with 500 households or more.
The Public Works Bureau stated that the community’s replacement of basement lamps must hold a “differentiated ownership meeting”, which can only be replaced after more than half of the households agree. If the meeting is held late or a consensus is not reached, it may delay the community’s application for subsidies. Therefore, the lighting replacement subsidy in 107 has been postponed to the end of September this year to facilitate the application for the replacement of lamps in 107 communities; if the community is happy with lamps in 108, you can still apply for the 108 projects subsidy based on the issuance time on the invoice.
The Bureau of Works said that about 60 communities have applied for the 107 subsidy program, and 6.9 million have been subsidized. The total budget of the 108-year program is about 15 million, encouraging communities to replace lamps with energy-saving lamps; New Taipei City has received subsidies, Communities will also conduct spot checks because of the huge amount of subsidies in communities with more than 500 households. The proportion of spot checks is 100%. In communities with less than 200 households, the sampling rate is over 10%.
