To that end, teams of consultants visited the houses and conducted technical, structural, and administrative analysis on actual conditions of energy use in the buildings. For example, the consultants found that an apartment in Seokkwan-dong in the north of the city could save up to 82 percent a month (1,200 won from 6,500 won) in electric charges for common areas including basement parking spaces and staircases.
A city government official said, "With a simple change in electric utility contract types most appropriate for each apartment building, apartment residents could cut their energy bill significantly." The city government will expand the program to 250 apartment complexes in October and November, followed by 500 complexes next year.
