16. Off-topic but did you know... Japan currently has only one nuclear power plant operational?

NHK, Nov. 2: Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority has surveyed the country’s only operating nuclear power plant to determine whether a seam under the facility is an active fault. The authority says it may ask the Ohi plant’s operator — Kansai Electric Power Company — to suspend operations, depending on the survey results.

AP, Nov. 2: Japanese nuclear regulators inspected ground structures at the country’s only operating nuclear power plant Friday to examine if an existing fault line is active. The inspection will determine whether the Ohi plant in western Japan should close.

Kyodo, Nov. 2: “It is one possibility that there will be some talks about reinvestigation” during a meeting on Sunday in Tokyo to evaluate the results, Kunihiko Shimazaki said at a news conference after the one-day inspection, which was closely watched as the country’s sole operating nuclear plant could be asked to shutdown if the fault is judged as active.


Huh?
