Nobody seems to be able to agree on whether or not there will be a power shortage this summer. What do you think?

"Nobody seems...." it's shocking, i thought only JT readers (foreigners) were doubtful of power shortage.

Not surprising since even the power companies can't predict what kind of summer we'll have. If it's hot like in 2010 there will be some problems, if it's cooler then less problems.

Also the gov't's new energy policy is not due out until the end of July so we don't really know what is their thinking on the future of nuclear energy.

There wll be some reactors ready for a restart if the situation becomes critical, but the restarting of any of the reactors should be based on safety concerns and not profits. Only those which have installed temporary safety measures which has happened at the KEPCO Oi plant.

I think that everyone agrees that no one can agree whether there will be power shortages or not this summer.

I agree with what they think.

I think that if they make less power than what is needed, then there will be what is called a shortage. If they make enough then there will be no shortage.

I am however almost 100% sure that after the summer, this forum will still argue whether there was a shortage or not. And if there was one, whose fault was it?

Obviously, if there's not enough electricity to go around, then that can possibly lead to shortages. On the other hand, if there is more energy than people can use, most people will find enough electricity when they turn on their power at home. Of course, this can be impacted by things such as sun spots and other transient events like national pachinko tournaments.
