The Philippines is looking to revive its dormant nuclear power plant to solve its energy crisis.
Experts say it could reduce soaring power prices by up to 70 percent.
The Bataan Nuclear Power plant was built in the 1970s and was the first in Southeast Asia. But it never opened.
It was mothballed and past presidents have been hesitant to recommission it, saying that it was a reminder of the excesses of former President Ferdinand Marcos’ regime.

Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Bataan in the northern Philippines.
