  1. On August 14, 2015, Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. reported to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry that they had started generating power using Unit 1 of the Sendai Nuclear Power Station at 9:00 a.m.
  2. The start of power generation using Sendai Nuclear Power Station Unit 1 is an essential step toward the establishment of a well-balanced power source mix, and a more stable electric power supply.
