The world’s largest nuclear plant is in Japan, the Kashiwazaki power plant. It contains 7 operating units and a total capacity for 8,212 MW (megawatts). The Kashiwazaki produces enough energy to provide for 16 million households. The Kashiwazaki’s annual energy output is equivalent to 16,000 wind turbines’.
On July 16, 2007, a large earthquake with a magnitude of 6.8 caused the Kashiwazaki to leak radioactive water into the sea. People started to question whether nuclear power was really as safe for the environment as it had been previously stated to be.
