8 Years On: Revenue to Fall at Fukushima Towns after Plant Decommissioning

8 Years On: Revenue to Fall at Fukushima Towns after Plant Decommissioning

   Fukushima, March 7 (Jiji Press)--Fukushima Prefecture towns hosting a nuclear power plant to be scrapped are set to struggle with the end of massive grants that will follow the much-awaited decommissioning.
   Residents of the towns of Naraha and Tomioka are eager for the demolition of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.'s <9501> Fukushima No. 2 plant, which straddles the two towns.
   The facility stands just south of the company's Fukushima No. 1 power plant, which had a triple meltdown after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
   TEPCO has floated a plan to decommission the No. 2 plant, in addition to the decommissioned No. 1 plant.
   "We appreciate the plan to a certain degree," Naraha Mayor Yukiei Matsumoto told TEPCO President Tomoaki Kobayakawa when he visited Naraha in June last year to explain the decommissioning plan.
