Tepco will raise the electricity cost for the families


Tepco will raise the electricity bill for non-corporation consumers by 5~15% to pay for compensation and abandoning the nuclear plants.
Tepco employees were paid bonus last December (Average 300,000JPY) but they claim they will have 600 billion yen of deficit for this March. They assert “If they can’t re-start nuclear plants, they will have 800~900 billion of deficit annually, it can’t be a business.”.

Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Edano refused them to try to raise the electricity bill the end of last year.
However, if Tepco goes bankrupt, they can no longer pay for compensation and abandoning the reactors. Japanese government agreed with Tepco to raise the fee.
Japanese citizens will be compensated from their own electric fee after Tepco steals their own profit.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
