Japan's Promotion Measures for Introduction

(3) The New Buyback Program for PV Generation / Costs to electricity users

It is estimated that the monthly addition for a standard household will range between ¥30 and ¥100.

The result of estimation for an addition per kWh shows that an initial addition will be ¥0.1/kWh and a monthly addition for a standard household will be ¥30 - 100.

* The estimates below indicate the amount of the entire purchasing cost, and thus, avoidable cost and the amount equivalent to the cost incurred before the fare revision have not been deducted. Therefore, the amount of PV surcharge will actually be lower than the figures listed below.

  Initial Period In 5-10 years
Total Purchase Approx. ¥80-90 billion/year Approx. ¥180-300 billion/year
Monthly addition per kWh Approx. ¥0.10/kWh Approx. ¥0.15-0.30/kWh
Monthly addition for a standard household
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 3,600 (kWh/year)
Approx. ¥360/year Approx. ¥540-1,080/year
Monthly addition for industry as a whole
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 360 billion (kWh/year)
Approx. ¥36 billion/year Approx. ¥54-108 billion/year
Of which, the amount borne by industries with a large demand * Electricity consumption: Approx. 282 billion (kWh/year) Approx. ¥28.2billion/year Approx. ¥42.3-84.6 billion/year
(e.g.) Machinery
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 72 billion (kWh/year)
Approx. ¥7.2 billion/year Approx. ¥10.8-21.6 billion/year
(e.g.) Steel
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 36 billion (kWh/year)
Approx. Approx. ¥3.6 billion/year Approx. ¥5.4-10.8 billion/year
(e.g.) Chemicals
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 30 billion (kWh/year)
Approx. Approx. ¥3 billion/year Approx. ¥4.5-9.0 billion/year
Of which amount borne by small- and medium-sized enterprises (e.g.) Small restaurants
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 8,400 (kWh/year)
Approx. ¥840/year Approx. ¥1,260-2,520/year
(e.g.) Small- and medium-sized factories
* Electricity consumption: Approx. 0.3 million (kWh/year)
Approx. ¥30,000/year Approx. ¥45,000-90,000/year

* The estimation for both standard households and industries with large demand is performed on the basis of the current consumption
* Compiled on the basis of Electricity Demand in FY 2008 (Confirmed Report) by the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan (April 30, 2009)
