Renewable Energy Certificate

NIPPECO was offered “Renewable Energy Certificate” by Premium Green Power K.K., and purchased it for 25,000 kWh per year from April 2012 totaling 100,000 kWh for 4 years (2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015).
25,000 kWh power consumption per year equals an annual demand for lighting at the newest Chiba Plant completed in 2010. Also, the effect of reducing CO2 gas by purchasing 25,000 kWh approximately equals 14 tons of CO2 per year, corresponding to the amount of CO2 absorbed by 1000 cedar trees in a year.
(*1) Applied the default value of 0.555 kg-CO2/kWh as defined by the Ministry of Environment for the CO2 conversion factor
(*2) Applied 14 g/year for CO2 absorption of cedar tree
