After operating for 40 years, the second (Kuosheng) nuclear power plant has been officially shut down and disconnected. Minister of Economic Affairs Wang Mei-hua stated that small-scale units for the Tongxiao power plant in Miaoli and the No. 8 unit at the Datan Power Plant in Guanyin District, Taoyuan, will be added. This, paired with solar photovoltaics, night-time pumped-storage hydroelectricity, and conventional hydraulic power, power supply will be sufficient. However, scholars have questioned that the No. 8 unit at Datan has yet to be tested, and the incorporation of pumped-storage hydroelectricity shows there may be a power supply crisis at any time in the future.
