Japan Nuclear Power Free After Shutdown of Last Reactor

Japan has none of its 50 reactors operating as of today after its sole operating nuclear unit was halted for planned maintenance last week.

Hokkaido Electric Power Co. shut the No. 3 unit at its Tomari plant in northern Japan on May 5 as scheduled, leaving the country without an operating reactor for the first time since May 1970.
