Taiwan Mobile has recently announced a donation of NT$1 million, as a part of its initiative for raising NT$3.89 million for the installation of a PV power system, for the Spinal Cord Injury Patient Center.
The Taiwanese company has teamed up with 20 partners, including Sunny Founder, a green power station platform, and Momo shop, in pushing the initiative. The initiative is being carried out under the guidelines of the "Green Power for Charity" program, which it initiated along with the Taiwan Mobile Foundation three years ago.
Taiwan Mobile has worked with Sunny Founder over the past two years in installing various PV power systems, which total around 268.2 kW in capacity, for a number of charities. Together, these systems are expected to generate 5.77 GW of power over the next 20 years, which will cut CO2 emission by 31.97 million tons.
Different from past practice, where the proceeds from the power output generated by PV power systems are used as the donations for charities, the PV power systems for the Spinal Cord Injury Patient Center will be owned and run by the center itself and is expected to generate 1.45 GW of power in the next 20 years. This will help it to save up to NT$4.95 million in power bills. Moreover, Taiwan Mobile will subscribe to the renewable energy certificates that were derived from power generation for 20 years, which will result in an extra income of NT$4.72 million for the center.
Taiwan Mobile is currently soliciting donations from the public for the fund-raising initiative. Other partners for the program include ASUS, Benten, Hugiga, HTC, Huawei, OPPO, Sony, Sugar, Samsung, vivo, Philips, Tokuyo, Dyson, Honeywell, and Braun.
