LED will be big business in coming years so it does make sense to invest in this area. I am, though, not sure how much interest does TSMC has to expand its business on its own.

@lifewingmate Not sure if TSMC is manufacturing LED's for its competitors. I guess LED and SOLAR manufacturing units will be used only to produce TSMC brands.

I am very pleased to see all of the strategic initiatives TSMC is taking. As a major foundry of design firms worldwide, the leaders of TSMC are also paying attention to the green energy effort found in solar and LED technologies. My concerns are how interests amount when TSMC's own fab products compete since they also produce many companies' LED and solar chips. I wonder how they will separate things in a legal sense to make sure everyone's IP is protected. I'm also concerned in the environmental effects of all of the construction that is happening. Are there any local Taiwanese or business partners who can comment on any of these issues? Congratulations TSMC for taking bold steps forward.
