Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.

Chubu Electric Power would like to announce that commercial operation for Atagi Hydroelectric Power Station (Gujo City, Gifu Prefecture) has started today. The station has been under construction since May 2014.

Atagi Hydroelectric Power Station is a newly established station that uses regular water flow release of the riverine, and is located directly below the Gifu Prefecture-managed Atagi Dam. This is the first hydroelectric power station that we developed at a dam run by Gifu Prefecture.

Hydroelectric power is one of the few energies fully produced within Japan. Given that it also is a renewable energy with exceptional environmental characteristics, Chubu Electric Power will press ahead with its development in a group-wide manner while continuing to pay due considerations to its economic efficiency.
