Power Shortage Alert Issued, Gori-1 Nuclear Power Plant to Resume Operations
Korea's power supply hit a dangerously low level earlier in the day due to surging electricity consumption, as the country experiences a record heat wave and consecutive tropical nights.
Korea Power Exchange, the country's power distributer, issued a power shortage alert at around eleven a.m. Monday morning, after the power reserves level dipped below 3-million kilowatts.
The alert was issued for the first time since a nationwide blackout last September.
Amid escalating energy demands, the Korean government has decided to retart the Gori-1 nuclear power plant, which has been shut for the past five months for safety reasons.
The Minister of Knowledge Economy says the reactor will be fully operational later this week, to supplement the power supply.
