Hopefully this dismantling of this power station should be less costly and less controversial.

Kashiwazaki Kariwa. That's quite a mouthful. I used to teach a class of five elementary school students focused on writing. Four could answer the question of residence as "I live in Oe." One, though, had to respond, "I live in Minamisendanbatamachi." Guess who always finished last.

A good start, however. The NRA gets to write their own safety standards, and emergency response, prevention protocols. When they are not standing on the neck of TEPCO and not decommissioning, or forcing the ( as an example ) rewiring reactors that have 30 yr old plus electrical wiring which is still not fire retarded, this is just smoke and mirrors

I find that a surprise that it would decommission 5 reactors leaving it with two reactors out of 17 originally. 6 at the nuclear disaster site, 4 at the other Fukushima plant, and 7 in Niigata, Kashiwazaki Kariwa.

According to the Nuclear Decommissioning Law the cost of the decommissioning must be met by the reactor owner and must show the necessary funds to complete the work and set those funds into a trust account so that in the event of a company collapse the money remains available to complete the decommissioning.

That would be a total of 9 reactors TEPCO wants to decommissioning at a cost of nearly ¥1 trillion but this company is near bankrupt.

The cost of the nuclear disaster site will be ¥100 trillion. TEPCO has also stated it won't pay any more compensation to the nuclear evacuee's, which it promised to do.

I was starting to believe TEPCO more until they said they won’t pay compensation and the problem of the waste water.
