» Enough power available in summer without specific saving

For the first time since the Fukushima nuclear disaster started, the government will not ask people to save electricity this summer because utilities are expected to have sufficient supplies, sources said April 8.

Electric power companies have been increasing thermal power generation while energy-saving efforts of residents and companies have spread since the triple meltdown at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March 2011.
