Approaches to secure electric power supply capacity
Impact by the earthquake and tsunami to the power stations
On March 11, 2011, power supply facilities mainly in the coast of Taiheiyou ocean were severely damaged by the Tohoku-Chiho-Taiheiyou-Oki Earthquake and tsunami.
■Status of severely damaged power stations
after the earthquake
|Nuclear Power||Fukusima Daiichi||4,700||All units shut down|
|Fukusima Daini||4,400||All units shut down|
Unit 1,3 and 5: planned outage at time of the earthquake
Unit 2 and 4: shut down due to the earthquake
Unit 1: shut down due to the earthquake
Unit 1 and 4: planned outage at the time of the earthquake
Unit 2,3,5 and 6: shut down due to the earthquake
※Supply capacity “before the
earthquake” means the capacity
at the time of the earthquake occurred .
Approach Status of Thermal Power Station
Although we are facing a limited power supply situation due to the earthquake, we are making every effort to meet the energy demands of all of our customers, not falling short by even 1kW or 1kWh.
Information concerning the power supply and demand outlook
Due to the tremendous support from both domestic and overseas manufacturers, construction companies, partner companies and electric power companies as well as the understanding of the government, the municipality and local citizens, our efforts to secure a stable supply capacity have been successful.
We are providing information on the supply and demand outlook, daily electric power usage and supply capacity etc. through press releases, our website, and through our Twitter account “Official TEPCO” etc.
Around-the-clock efforts will continue to ensure a stable supply of electricity for all customers.
