Edano, minister of Economy “Power rates have been insanely cheap”

On 11/30/2012, Edano, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry stated power rates have been insanely cheap, related to The Kansai Electric Power Company, Incorporated and Kyushu Electric Power Company, Incorporated applying to raise the power rates.

It is because the current power rates don’t include the cost of compensation for nuclear accident and for decommissioning reactors.

Edano commented, new power rates need to be phased in to avoid the radical increase of power rates.

M. Edano, ministre de l’Économie : “Les prix de l’électricité ont été ridiculement bas”

Le 30 novembre 2012, M. Edano, ministre de l’Économie, du Commerce et de l’Industrie affirme que les tarifs de l’électricité ont été ridiculement bas, en appui à Kansai Electric Power Company et Kyushu Electric Power Company qui demandent à relever leurs tarifs d’électricité.

La raison en est que les factures d’électricité n’incluent pas les coûts des indemnisations et des démantèlements de réacteurs.

M. Edano ajoute que les nouveaux tarifs de l’électricité doivent être réajustés pour éviter une augmentation brutale.

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.
