TEPCO payed out their portion of a $2 million payment to the village that sits near their planned new nuclear plant in Aomori prefecture. TEPCO had promised to cease such payments as part of their government restructuring. The Higashidori proposed nuclear plant is unlikely to be completed after the NRA raised concerns about an active fault running under the reactor site. TEPCO also has partial involvement in the Rokkasho nuclear reprocessing site run by a group of government agencies and nuclear operators. Meanwhile many evacuees are being pushed to return home to contaminated villages and most are still waiting for compensation for their losses.
TEPCO has repeatedly been asked to cut costs and they used it as part of a recent promise to better handle the out of control costs at Fukushima Daiichi. Even with the government owning a majority share in the company TEPCO continues to go about their old ways.
