Power Shortage in Japan on Summer

Kansai Electric Power Co. <9503> said Friday that it will ask all clients in its service area in western Japan to cut electricity use in summer by some 15 pct from a year before.

The plan is expected to affect companies that are considering shifting some of their production to western Japan to deal with a power shortage in the service area of Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501>, which faces a fall in its output after the March 11 disaster.
