Changhua County Magistrate Wei Ming-ku told investors at a conference in Taipei Wednesday that his county is perfect for investment in wind farms, given the shallow waters off its coastline.
Wei said 21 of 36 sites listed by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) as excellent wind farm sites are located off Changhua on Taiwan's west coast.
The shallow waters along the Changhua coastline are suitable for the development of wind power, Wei said at the conference for potential international investors in renewable power generation, which was organized by the MOEA.
In keeping with the central government's green policy, Changhua will work to promote wind energy, building on its great achievements in the photovoltaic industry, Wei said.
The central county government is aiming to create a new cluster of green energy industries to help boost the development of local industries and create more investment and employment opportunities, while working toward its goal of making Taiwan a nuclear-free homeland by 2025, Wei said.
