KEPCO implements a project to support replacement of old transformers in apartments
Implemented “Apartment old transformer replacement support project”
[Introduction of the case/ Reporter Park Yeon-pa] = KEPCO (CEO Jong-gap Kim), the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the high-voltage apartment's own transformer (receiver transformer) to prevent power outages due to deterioration and lack of capacity in a timely manner,'replace old transformers in apartments. It was decided to carry out the'support project'.
The target of support is △ 15 years or more after transformer installation △ 5kW or less contracted power per household △ Priority among apartments with less than 5.7 billion won (average of sales in Seoul and 6 metropolitan cities) (old age and breakdown frequency, capacity per household, exclusive area, etc.) This apartment was selected in consideration of, and it plans to provide support (total 200 apartment complexes, 4.3 billion won) of up to 80% (50% of KEPCO, 30% of government expenditure) of the transformer and low voltage circuit breaker material price when it is replaced.
The power reception facilities such as transformers installed in the apartment premises are owned and managed by the apartment, but KEPCO has been implementing a transformer replacement support project since 2005 to prevent power outages.
In particular, as power outages in apartment buildings emerged as a social problem due to the surge in electricity consumption in 2018, KEPCO's budget and government expenses of about 7.2 billion won were provided to 329 apartment complexes in the past two years (2019-2020) to ensure the safety of the public. I'm doing it.
Among the causes of power outages in old apartments over 15 years old, 25 out of 270 transformer failures (9%, as of 2020) take considerable time to recover from power outages.
KEPCO expects to minimize long-term power outages through early replacement of obsolete transformers to secure residents' safety and relieve inconvenience. In addition, to prevent apartment breakdowns, we are conducting inspection of power reception facilities using thermal imaging diagnostic equipment, and KEPCO employees are dispatched to the site to support facility restoration when an apartment power outage occurs.
