Last updated: 8 November 2019

This program aims to reduce power consumption and promote energy use rationalization by encouraging use of high-efficiency electric devices that can lower power consumption.


The program promotes the use of high-efficiency electric devices to reduce electricity consumption and peak power. This is to encourage the public to rationalize their energy consumption. The program replaces old lighting systems with high-efficiency devices for free for the energy poor such as low-income groups and social welfare facilities. This is to improve their energy welfare.
