Report: China opens nuclear power plant to public

China has opened up its largest nuclear power plant to the public, state media said Sunday. Amid booming economic growth, China plans to build dozens of nuclear power plants in the coming years to ease mounting power shortages, and Xinhua News Agency said opening up the Daya Bay plant in Guangdong province would allow the public to learn about power generation and safety issues. Beijing regards nuclear power as a clean alternative to imported oil and China's own abundant but dirty coal reserves.
