Kepco va payer 1 500 000 $ de primes en augmentant ses tarifs d’électricité

Kepco va augmenter ses tarifs d’électricité domestique de 11,88 % à partir du mois d’avril.
C’est pour dégager 1 544 103 $ (140 000 000 ¥) pour payer l’ancienneté de 14 de leurs salariés en tant que “conseillers”.
De 2013 à 2015, chaque ancienneté sera payée 110 293 $ (10 000 000 ¥), pris sur l’augmentation des factures.
Ceci a été affirmé au cours d’une audition publique organisée par le METI (= Ministère de l’Économie du Commerce et de l’Industrie) le 28 janvier 2013.


De façon inexpliquée, il n’y a pratiquement pas eu de dons en dehors des virements mensuels depuis la semaine dernière.

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.
