TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) has said the city government’s HQ
won’t follow the Executive Yuan and the Presidential Office in shutting down its air-conditioning around midday.
The two government bodies said Monday that they would switch off air conditioning in their offices from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for two weeks to conserve electricity.
Ko said he didn’t think the repercussions of the idea were reasonable.
If the AC were to be turned off, where could city employees go to get away from the heat in the meantime, the mayor asked.
Although the AC will remain on in City Hall, Ko said, thermostats will be turned to 28 degrees Celsius. [FULL STORY]
