Penghu County, with its strong potential for wind power generation, might be able to develop
“green” energy in addition to its tourism industry, Premier Lin Chuan (林全) said yesterday during a visit to the islands.
Visiting the historic Matsu temple, a hospital run by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, as well as wind power facilities, the premier made his first trip to Penghu since he was sworn in last month.
“Penghu is a county with many beautiful islands, and [the county government’s decision to] make it a low-carbon-emission region is a good objective,” Lin said.
“I hope that, besides wind power, Penghu can build other ‘green’ energy facilities, making it known for its ‘green’ energy,” he added. [FULL STORY]
