Nuclear power is one of the options being eyed by the Department of Energy to help sustain the power needs of the country.
Department of Energy Sec. Alfonso Cusi said the country will need to increase its ability to provide power as the economy grows.
Nuclear remains the cheapest and most reliable source of power, said Cusi.
The DOE will lookin into the possibility of using nuclear power to satisfy the base power requirments of the country. As such, tapping nuclear as a source of stable power supply is a huge option available to the DOE.
Before anything else, Cusi said the DOE is busy formulating a nuclear policy before thinking about using nuclear power as a power source.
