Pingtung County Recovered from Natural Disaster and Achieving the Goal of Providing Domestic Electricity 100% by Green Power


After the completed “Aqua Solar Farm” project (installed capacity with 23.4 MW) due to typhoon Morakot in 2009, we are on the way to 100% green power for the need of domestic electricity in Pingtung. The first “Green Energy Promotion Office” was established to promote green energy in 2016. After engaging in “100% Renewable Cities and Regional Network” organized by ICLEI, Pingtung aims to the goal of achieving domestic electricity 100% provided by green power through the strategies of “Severe Subsidence Area” (SSA) project and “Multi-function Land Use.” According to the GIS tool guide issued by the U.S. Department of Energy, we selected around 3,800 from 13,164 hectares in SSA where are non-arable for installing photovoltaic (PV) power plants. Multi-function Land Use has been implemented without affecting the function of public facilities, including floating PV devices on a retention pond and ground-mounted PV panels on the dike, landfill, and court at school for green power. We provide a platform for stakeholders while adjusting regulation on the fee to attract PV investors for the SSA project could be a triple-win model for other cities to learn around the world. By the end of 2022, the installed capacity would be from 777 MW to 1 GW, satisfying the need for livelihood use powered by 100% green power.
