Wind Energy on Jeju Island, South Korea

Pleased to see that 20% of the electrical energy on Jeju Island (an island south of the South Korean mainland with multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites and natural beauty) comes from clean, domestic, affordable wind energy.  I visited two of these sites and my guide indicated that wind energy was very favorably received by the residents of this island and that the wind turbines blend in very well to the natural scenery and view sheds.  They much, much prefer wind energy to imported energy (via power cable from the mainland or fossil-based generation on the island).
