Description

The amount of electricity produced from nuclear power plants in Korea has surpassed three trillion kilowatt-hours. The state-run Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Company said it reached the three trillion mark at around 1 a.m. on Monday, Korea time. The country began its first commercial operation with the Gori Nuclear Power Plant in the southeastern port city of Busan in 1978. Three trillion kilowatt-hours is equivalent to the amount of electricity that the entire country consumes in six years and three months, and what the entire global population uses in roughly six weeks. Currently, Korea has a total of 23 nuclear power plants in operation and plans to increase its total nuclear capacity twofold in the next two decades.
