Japan Asks For Power Usage Cuts


Welcome to the new reality of energy scarcity. If a highly advanced country like Japan asks its citizens to voluntarily cut energy use, one can be assured that something big is in the making. In western Japan energy consumers will be asked to reduce demand by at least 15% compared with peak levels in the summer of 2010 for the period from July 2 through Sept. 7. The power cuts are linked to the nuclear power stations that were taken off the grid after the desaster in Fukushima. There is no reason not to assume that this will be a recurring pattern in the years to come, until the moment arrives where electricity will be rationed.
