Nuclear power not an option for Taiwan: president
Posted on 2017-08-12 16:10:13
President Tsai Ing-wen said Friday that the government will use all possible
means to ensure a stable electricity supply but will not consider opening
the fourth nuclear power plant, which has been mothballed since 2014 amid
anti-nuclear protests.

That, according to a statement released by the Presidential Office.
Tsai was responding to a proposal by business leaders that the fourth
nuclear power plant be put into operation to resolve the current electricity
shortages facing Taiwan.

They also urged the government to restart the No. 1 reactor at the first
nuclear power plant and the No. 2 reactor at the second nuclear power plant,
which went offline in December 2014 and May 2015, respectively, before the
expiration of their service life.

The president, however, argued that Taiwan's electricity supply has been
tight in recent weeks mainly because the country's power transmission system
was damaged during Typhoon Nesat in late July, and she stressed that the
problem has nothing to do with the government's policy of moving away from
nuclear power.
