Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, Banri Kaieda said Sunday that the ability to supply Tokyo Electric Power Company would be short-10GW by Monday, leaving the company a “significant shortage of electricity. “Kaieda at a press conference televised by public broadcaster NHK that the production capacity of TEPCO would be around 31 GW cons electricity demand estimated at 41 GW from Monday. It said that the decision to implement further cuts in Tepco areas it serves was “inevitable.” NHK has reported separately that TEPCO has decided to manage its planned power outages 6:20 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday by dividing its five regions and fault management in slots of three hours. Kaieda said Tohoku Electric, which is also facing a complete breakdown of its plant in Onagawa nuclear energy, does not face as severe energy shortage that the massive earthquake has hardest hit Tepco from the regions it serves on Friday and demand for energy fell.
