The Taiwan Power Company (Taipower; Chinese: 台灣電力公司; pinyin: Táiwān Diànlì Gōngsī) is a state-owned electric power utility providing electric power to Taiwan and off-shore islands of Republic of China.


Taipower was established on 1 May 1946. In 1994 a measure which allowed independent power producers (IPP's) to provide up to 20 percent of Taiwan's electricity should have ended the monopoly.[5] Since 1 October 2012, Taipower allied with Taiwan Water Corporation to provide cross-agency integrated service called Water and Power Associated Service as an integrated water and power services that accepts summary transactions between the two utilities. On 11 October 2012, the Economics Committee of the Legislative Yuan cut Taipower's budget for power purchases from IPP.[6]
