Japan to Let Utilities Raise Dependence on Solar, Sankei Says

March 8 (Bloomberg) -- The Japanese government will allow the nation’s utilities to include solar power in electricity supply plans for the year beginning April to ease expected shortages in summer, the Sankei newspaper reported.

Solar power had been excluded due to instability concerns, Sankei reported, without saying where it got the information. Japan’s utilities are required to submit annual plans detailing how they intend to supply power.

The utilities will be allowed to include as much as 10 percent of their solar capacity, according to the report.
