More Wind Generators



Over the past couple of years driving to and from Taipei on the #3 freeway, I’ve appreciated the Taiwan government’s desire to be “green” by stationing wind generators on the coast  halfway between Taichung and Taipei. I saw some out on Penghu last summer, and read again recently about more generators having been added elsewhere on island.



But I wasn’t expecting to discover them practically in my own Western Yunlin backyard when, heading to the coast west of here for the first time in a half year or so,  I spied several new wind generators (those pictured here).

I observed 4 or 5 units not yet in operation, but the project sign below said the plan is for 14 generators to eventually be in operation in this location.
