Tohoku Elec's Onagawa nuclear plant halted after quake

According to the media report, the Mitsui & Company plans to build the mega solar generation plants in the quake-hit Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima prefectures.

This plan aims at reconstruction of the disaster-hit areas' economies as well as to give more supplies of the electricity badly needed for the loss incurred due to the crippled nuclear generation plants of the areas. The company is to start the project already during this year and to offer jobs for the people there.

The Mitsui & Company started discussion with the hosting prefectural governments and the Tohoku Electric Power Company. They plan to build several plants across the areas.

Upon completion of the plants, one plant can generate some 100 thousands kilowatt, an equivalent of meeting the demands of 30,000 households.
