Taiwan studies plan to cut nuclear power output

TAIPEI, March 14 (Reuters) - Taiwan’s state-run Taipower is studying plans to cut nuclear power output and raise output in alternative energy amid Japan’s nuclear crisis, an executive said on Monday, though no changes will be made for current operations.

“We discussed this issue this morning,” Roger Lee, chief engineer of Taipower, told Reuters. Taipower is the operator of the island’s nuclear power plants.

“If the society has increasing concerns about nuclear power after the situation in Japan, we would look for alternatives,” he said. (Reporting by Rachel Lee; Writing by Faith Hung; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
