Environment Protection Bureau Advocacy For Every Global Villager's Obligation
With the World Earth Day incoming on June 5th, Kinmen county Environment Protection Bureau will hold a "Low Carbon Biking Circling Kinmen Education For you and Me" Activity. This activity also includes education seminars and a garden party, offering electronic-motorcycle, electronic-bike, electronic-automobile and electronic-bus trial riding and the exhibition for electronic vehicle batter converter. It is hope that people's enthusiasm attendance can contribute to the success of this activity.
According to the latest survey statistics, Kinmen county Environment Protection indicates that there have cut approximately 11 billion trees in the world and released more than 8 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmospheric layer annually. With the World Earth Day incoming on June 5th, people shall use low-pollution transportation including biking, electronic-bike, electronic-motor or public transportation system to fulfill the obligation for earth protection.
Environment Protection Bureau indicated that the ever-increasing carbon dioxide and methane release into the atmospheric layer is the major cause for deteriorating global warming. The annual personal carbon dioxide exhaust discharge volume in Taiwan averages up to 12 tons, 3 times the global average volume. Especially Taiwan's annual exhaust discharge volume growth rate ranks the top 1 in the world. Therefore, low-pollution transportation vehicles for reducing exhaust discharge would be the best solution.
Environment Protection Bureau will hold "Low Carbon Green Energy for Kinmen Island and Eco Protection For You and Me" activity from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm on the World Earth Day, June 5th. It is proposed to offer trial riding of electronic motorcycle, electronic bikes, and electronic buses and exhibition of electronic vehicle batter converters to assist people in understanding the electronic vehicles features not only energy saving but also excellent cruising range and slope-climbing capacity without any disadvantages of the old generation products. A subsidy between NT$ 8,000~11,000 is available for procurement of TES Certification electronic vehicles or motorcycles certified by Industrial Bureau. Moreover, annual license tax and fuel tax can also be exempt. It is a pretty worthy and economic deal.
Environment Protection Bureau indicates that there are 28 free-service electricity charging stations in Kinmen county (located at Kinmen County Environment Protection Bureau, Chuan Long Motorcycle Shop, County Government, Kinchen Town Office, Kinchen Bus Station, Kinshui Primary School, Cheng-Kin-Fu Kinmen Peanut Candy Shop, Kin-Yuan-Li Knife Factory, County Civil Officer Cooperative Supermarket, Saint-Zhu Kinmen Peanut Candy shop, County Fishery Research Institute, Ou-Chin Ancient House, W Zhou Porcelain Arts Shop, Li-Kuang-Chen General Temple, County Porcelain Factory, Kinfu Town Office, County Health Bureau, Banyan Tree Garden, Folk Culture Village, Yi Mountain Temple, Juguan Harbor, Liu Island County Cooperative Supermarket, Sage Goddess Temple (Red Kaoliang Liquor General Factory),Min-Yang Motorcycle Shop, Hsin-Chin-Yueh Motorcycle Shop, Taiwan Power Company's Business Service Branch.

Environment Protection Bureau also indicates that for building Kinmen as a low carbon production island, both county and central Environment Protection Bureau will offer subsidy for procurement of electronic vehicles NT$ 3,000 and 5,000 respectively in this year.
