Reactor Restarts Still Looming Over Japan

The Fukui Assembly will meet Wednesday to hold a briefing on the restart of the Oi reactors. The assembly will convey their opinion to the governor.

Kyodo said back in April that they will also consult with the towns residents. Power supplies in Japan are looking to be better than the predictions given earlier by power companies. Kansai region and the city of Osaka could be more likely to experience shortages. The new review claims Japan could actually have a small power surplus in August rather than a shortage. Kansai could have shortages still under the new estimates. These predictions were based on an unusually hot summer meaning things could be much better if the summer turns out to be less hot.

The decision to restart the reactors has been vague throughout the process about who will have the final decision and if disapproval by any entity could completely stop the restart process.
