In the first stage, our project started knowing about the Taiwan power business development history from Qing Dynasty, Japanese Colonial Era to Kuomintang ruling time. In the second stage, we understood the main electricity generation in Taiwan which such as thermal, nuclear power generation, and increasingly common wind power facilities by data collection and actual interview. In the third stage, we learned how to save power efficiently and use it safely through visiting the substation and electricians reminding.
