Safety checks at South Korea’s nuclear power plants could mean that there are rolling blackouts this winter as South Korea prepares for the cold season. Though there are plans to add 4,000 megawatts (MW) of power supply capacity through savings and new plants, the possibility of rolling blackouts remain. A safer fuel source for nuclear plants, such as seen above, might help avoid blackouts.
The Government does have a plan for avoiding blackouts, of course, such as setting thermostats to 18˚ to 20˚ at home. Considering the cooler thermostat setting and the season, playing Christmas music and drinking premium whiskey is another way to keep warm at home, making this a season to enjoy. Cheers.
