Special support for nuclear power operators at odds with market liberalization

The industry ministry has proposed a system to support nuclear power generation by setting standard rates for electricity generated with atomic energy.

When the power retail market is liberalized from 2016, electricity will start being traded in a free market.

According to the ministry’s proposal, when market prices for electricity fall below the predetermined standard rates for power generated with nuclear energy, the electric utilities would be allowed to compensate for the difference by adding the amounts to their future charges. On the other hand, when market prices rise above the standard rates, utilities would be required to return the difference to customers.

In essence, this is a system to make sure the operators of nuclear power plants will earn certain levels of income from electricity they generate with atomic energy.
