Kepco stopped 8 thermal power plants for the oversupply of electricity to restart Ohi nuclear plant

As the reason to restart Ohi nuclear plant, Kepco and Japanese government pointed out the risk of power shortage, but Kepco stopped 8 thermal power plants after Ohi restart and the total power output decreased.
Kepco and Japanese government’s explanation turned out to be a lie.

They were deceived who thought the restart of Ohi nuclear is necessary to avoid power shortage again.

Kepco restarted Ohi nuclear plant unit3 on 7/1/2012.[Link] It started full operation on 7/9/2012, then Kepco stopped 8 thermal power plants on the same day.

However, the power output of Ohi nuclear plant is 1.18 million kW, where the total power output of 8 thermal power plants is 3.84 million kW. After restarting a nuclear plant and shutting down 8 thermal power plants, the total power supply decreased.

1.18 – 3.84 = -2.66 million kW

Spokes man of Kepco Kyoto branch stated they shut down those 8 thermal power plants because they have oversupply of power for the question of Kyoto labor’s union.
However, Kepco is still suggesting the possibility of planned power outage, asking Osaka citizens to save electricity. The reason is not explained.

火電停止は電力余剰だった! 関電京都支店広報が明かす

関西電力が火力発電8基を停止させたのは、原発再稼働により電力に余りがあるためだった─こんな事実が11日、関電京都支店の総務・広報グループの担当者の発言で明らかになりました。

同日、京都自治労連(池田豊委員長)が行った関電京都支店への要請で関電側が回答しました。自治労連側が火力発電の停止について問いただしたのに対し、電力需要に合わせて停止したもので、原発再稼働を受けて停止したものもあると発言しました。

関電は大飯原発3号機が9日にフル稼働し、同日に火力発電所8基を停止させていました。同社は、原発の再稼働以降も計画停電の可能性があるとして、府民に節電を呼びかけています。
