Fukushima Prefecture to Suspend Applications for Nuclear Subsidies

Author: No Comments Share:

Fukushima Prefecture will no longer apply for government subsidies for hosting nuclear power plants.

The Fukushima prefectural government concluded it will not apply for about three billion yen, or nearly 38-million dollars in subsides starting in fiscal 2012, which begins in April.

The prefectural government says it made the decision, as its reconstruction plan asks for the central government to scrap all reactors in Fukushima Prefecture.

Subsidies have already been declined for a planned nuclear power station in Minamisoma City and Namie Town near the plant.
