Various electricity price adjustments on April 1

In order to take into account people's livelihood, prices, energy conservation and carbon reduction, and Taipower's financial stability, the average price increase of electricity will be 11% from April, but the adjustment rate will be different for residential buildings, small businesses, and industries. In addition, measures such as discounts will be introduced in response to the economic climate, and the burden of renters will be considered. The frozen increase package can be called "the most complicated electricity price in history".

Only 7% of residential users will have an impact on the summer electricity bill of more than 4508 yuan

Among the electricity prices for people’s livelihood, about 12.31 million residential households below 700 kWh will be frozen, 700 kWh to 1,000 kWh will increase by 3%, and those above 1,000 kWh will be adjusted by 10%.

According to Taipower statistics, there are about 930,000 users with a temperature above 700 degrees, accounting for only about 7% of residential users.

Because the electricity bill adjustment plan is too complicated, people are confused and do not know whether they have been raised in electricity prices; Taipower said that they can find out the bills and compare them directly. The electricity bill payment is a two-month period, from June to September During this period, "it will only have an impact" if the bill exceeds 4,508 yuan, or the non-summer electricity price exceeds 3,832 yuan from October to May of the next year.

In addition, in order to avoid large fluctuations in prices caused by the increase in electricity prices for small businesses, a ceiling level is also added, changing from 4 to 5; Above 3,000 degrees increase by 5%.

In the industrial sector, about 20,000 users of high-voltage users such as steel, petrochemicals, cement, and semiconductors have increased by as much as 17%. %.

20,000 high-voltage users increased by 17%, steel, semiconductors, etc. have a great impact

In addition, considering the recession of the industry, Taipower gave a "half discount" to the increase. There were 15,000 low-voltage households who only increased by 5%, and 4,000 high-voltage households rose by 8.5%. They are mainly textile, metal processing, and out-of-home meal companies. However, it is expected that In September, the electricity price review meeting reviewed, that is, the 19,000 households first slowed down for half a year.

For the majority of "renters", a frozen increase is given. However, the landlord must first agree to install AMI smart meters, and at the same time receive Taipower's energy-saving counseling.

Taipower said that the installation of smart meters is to hope that users can better understand the habits of electricity consumption, and the electricity-saving counseling will send people to the rental office to further evaluate whether it is necessary to replace old appliances.

However, Taipower also reminded that the Ministry of the Interior currently has a finalized residential lease contract, which stipulates that the unit price should not be higher than the highest price for Xiayue and non-Xiayue. After adjustment, it is 7.69 and 6.03 yuan. If the landlord charges more than the maximum ceiling price, it may violate the law. , up to a heavy fine of 300,000 yuan.

Renters want to freeze rent, landlords install smart meters first

Taipower has also implemented time-based electricity prices for many years. The price difference between peak and off-peak rates is more than 2.5 to 3.5 times. It is recommended that the monthly electricity consumption be more than 700 kwh. At present, about 190,000 residential and commercial households in Taiwan use time-based electricity prices, including industrial and other users. About 250,000 households.

There are multiple versions of time electricity price, including two-stage, three-stage, simple, standard, etc. You can go to Taipower’s official website for direct trial calculation.

Taipower took a sub-rental apartment in Beishi as an example. The average monthly electricity consumption was 3,705 kilowatt-hours, and the average monthly electricity bill was 17,488 yuan. 20%, reduced to 13,658 yuan, switching to time-based electricity prices can indeed save money.
