Japan Unlikely To Restart Nuclear Plants This Year

The combination of new safety rules being implemented this July and the need to upgrade plants has caused all of Japan’s power companies to say they would not be able to restart any of their reactors within 2013. The high costs of meeting safety requirements is also playing a role in delaying any restarts.

Earlier Japan PM, Abe stated Japan would begin restarting nuclear reactors as soon as safety guidelines are in place. This claim flies in the face of the current structure where the NRA would ultimately decide if a plant meets the basic safety that would allow it to restart.
