    Summer power rates suspended again for most households in July (2021/07/22)

    Higher summer power rates will not come into effect for most residential users in July, the Cabinet announced Thursday. As a COVID relief measure, officials have extended their summer rate suspension for a month, through to the end of July. However, the relief does not apply to users of more than 1,000 kilowatt-hours a month, who will still be charged at the higher rates.

    For business owners, electricity is an inevitable expense. With businesses still reeling from the outbreak in May, lawmakers have called for a freeze on power rates and oil prices, to ease financial burdens.

    Refrigerator, air conditioning, oven. They consume electricity, and business has gotten worse. So we have to adjust our use based on the circumstances. There are subsidies that help out a little. For us it provides a bit of relief.

    This breakfast shop runs up a bill of NT$5,000-6,000 every month in off-peak periods. That can triple in the summertime, exceeding NT$10,000. It’s a hard burden to carry in a pandemic.

    Lo Ping-cheng
    Executive Yuan spokesman
    The Ministry of Economic Affairs proposed a July suspension today for residential users. That is, residential users who use up to 1,000 kilowatt-hours will continue to be charged non-summer rates. Summer rates will not apply to them. However, users who consume more than 1,000 kilowatt-hours a month will be charged summer rates.

    The Executive Yuan spokesman announced that summer rates will be suspended in July, as they were in June. But residential users who consume more than 1,000 kilowatt-hours a month will be charged summer rates. In related news, food and drink vendors are gearing up for a possible downgrade of the Level 3 COVID alert after July 26. A return to Level 2 could mean a return to dining in at restaurants nationwide.

    Of course we’re hoping to open up if the epidemic is under control. But we also worry that after reopening, there might be a second wave, an even more serious epidemic. But we do want to reopen soon for dining in.

    Lo Ping-cheng
    Executive Yuan spokesman
    With regard to this issue, we will sort out all the details and a package of guidelines, and decide on whether to lower the alert. All of that information will be announced together by the Central Epidemic Command Center.

    Regarding the announcement, the Executive Yuan spokesman deferred to the Central Epidemic Command Center. In the meantime, vendors are rushing to prepare for a potential reopening.

    夏季電價續凍漲 排除用電千度大戶

    討論許久的夏月電價,7月是否凍漲,行政院今天拍板宣布,延續六月,7月不實施夏日電價。但用電大戶得注意,有1000度的上限,超過還是會採計夏日電價。

    開店營業處處都得用電,但5月疫情爆發,重創各行各業,朝野立委也大聲疾呼7月應延續6月政策,取消夏季電價、凍漲油價,減輕民眾生活負擔。

    [[早午餐店老闆 張凱翔]]
    “冰箱冷氣烤箱,調整說看現在又要耗電,生意又變比較差,自己要去斟酌開,加減有補貼啦但是,對我們來說稍微算喘息一下”

    老闆直說每個月均電價大約五六千,碰上夏季電價,要繳的費用更是直接翻漲三倍,每個月上萬元電費,在疫情期間真的吃不消。

    [[行政院發言人 羅秉成]]
    “經濟部今天所提的七月暫緩實施,住宅夏月電價方案,也就是一千度以下用電量,以非夏月電價來收費,就是不適用夏月電價來收費,但是超過一千度的用電量,維持夏月電價收費”

    發言人率先宣布,七月一樣取消夏季電價計費,但民生用電的大戶得注意,有1000度的上限,超過仍然會採計夏日電價計算。除了電價,另一個最讓民眾關心的就是疫情警戒,7/26有沒有可能降回二級,讓餐飲業開放內用。

    [[早午餐店老闆 張凱翔]]
    “有趨緩的話當然是希望可以開,但是也會害怕說開了之後,會不會又爆發第二波,甚至更嚴重的疫情,但還是希望可以快點開放”

    [[行政院發言人 羅秉成]]
    “這部分各部會在這禮拜,都有所整理,整個配套會跟是否降級,一起由疫情指揮中心,來統一對外公布跟說明”

    行政院發言人羅秉成決定交給指揮中心宣布,業者殷殷期盼解封,找回商機。
