  • [01] AC replacement plan

  • [01] AC replacement plan

    A ministry of development-sponsored air conditioning replacement programme launched in June will end on Aug. 22 instead of early December, as initially planned, due to increased demand that led to its goals being met in just a few weeks.

    A total of 110,402 antiquated household ACs were replaced and recycled, corresponding to more than double the initial goal of 45,000 units, according to the development ministry figures released on Monday.

    Energy savings will reach 41.6 GWh/year when the initial planning was for 16.96 GWh/year. In addition, the carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by 36.6 thousand tons/year when the initial target was 14.9 thousand tons/year.

    Meanwhile, the state subsidy covering part of the cost of the purchase of energy saving ACs units reached 40 million euros, compared to the initial budget of 15 million euros.
