Green Power for Charity
Taiwan Mobile leads 13 domestic and foreign suppliers to donate NT$2 for each mobile phone sold, and public fundraising to build up PV system for disadvantaged groups. This innovation mixes up green power application and disadvantaged group care by inviting everyone to invest in PV for charity. This project focuses mainly on the environment protection and social public welfare, rather than TWM’s commercial profits; however, approximately NT$9.65 million is expected to be gained for the NPOs by the generated electricity in 20 years.
With this project, Taiwan Mobile teams up with suppliers and the public to initiate and promote green power, reversing the myth about high establishment cost and facilitating low cost entry solution to increase attention to participate. In 2017, Taiwan Mobile helped NPOs construct Roof PV Systems for a total of 99.8kW by raising NT$5.7 million. The estimated electricity generated by PV will reach 2.32 million kWh, and 1,225 tons of carbon emissions will be saved in 20 years; meanwhile, the rooftop temperature is expected to be lowered by 3-4°C. Taiwan Mobile expects to be the little sun for disadvantaged groups.
