The Japanese government decided to deregulate the electric power industry in order to redue price and stabilize power supply.

Tokyo Electric Company was state-run, but they have enjoyed the monopoly market after it was privatized.

If the leveralization is implemented, we can buy electricity from the affiliated power companies in other reagions, or companies which have newly joined this sector, such as big Internet provider, and trading company.

This makes the market open up, which leads to economic effects.

In addition, if more companies come into the industry, they will invest devices to supply power more effectively, and these efforts would improve their technology.
