MANILA, Philippines?State-run National Power Corp. has identified 14 candidate sites for a nuclear power plant, should the government pursue such controversial project.

Documents from Napocor identified the sites as Mapalan Point in Morong, Bataan; San Juan, Batangas; Talusan Point in Sipalay, Negros Occidental; Tagbarungis in Inagauan and Concepcion in Tanabag, both in Palawan; and Cansilan Point in Bayawan, Negros Oriental.

Also being considered are sites in General Santos, Sarangani; Piacan Point and Cauit Point, both in Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte; Baluangan, Cawayan in Negros Oriental; Palicpican in Ternate, Cavite; Port Irene/Matara Point and Rakat Hill, both in Cagayan.
?Nuclear power can contribute to energy security by stably supplying fuel regardless of the global energy landscape,? Napocor said, adding that it considered nuclear power as a green energy source.

A French group and Korea Electric Power Corp. (Kepco) have separately expressed interest in putting up an entirely new nuclear power plant in the Philippines that could generate 600 to 800 megawatts (MW) in additional capacities.
