The world's largest nuclear power station

According to Guiness World Records, Japan's Kashiwazaki nuclear plant, with 7 operating units and total capacity of 8,212 MW is since 1997 the largest station of its kind in the world.

This power station produces sufficient energy to cover the domestic electricity use of 16 million households. Considering that a 1.5 MW onshore wind turbine covers domestic electricity use for a 1000 families, the Kashiwazaki's annual energy output is equivalent to 16,000 wind turbines.
