3 more nuclear power plants in Guangdong province

Guangdong province will begin construction of 3 new nuclear power plants this year in order to meet energy shortfalls in the province. (SCMP April 1, 2006.) This is in addition to two existing nuclear power plants. Guangdong province has been suffering from chronic energy shortfalls because of the booming industrial economy. In the past it has imported energy from other provinces. These power plants are supposed to solve some of these problems. When the additional 3 power plants are on line, they are expected to contribute 20% of the province’s electric power.
