TEPCO has announced that it will start selling household power in Tohoku and Kyushu. In the future, we plan to expand nationwide such as Hokkaido, and competition across major barriers of major power companies is likely to intensify.
According to the announcement, TEPCO will start selling electric power for homes in the Tohoku and Kyushu regions from the 23rd.
TEPCO has already entered the Kansai and Chubu regions.
In the future, the company plans to expand into Hokkaido and Chugoku region and sell electricity for households nationwide.
Since the retailing of household electricity was liberalized three years ago, new business operators = new electricity entered one after another, and TEPCO's ground metropolitan area has been particularly switching to new electricity.
TEPCO intends to expand its business nationwide so that even if customers in the Tokyo metropolitan area move to a rural area, they will be able to supply power as it is, and will also seek new customers in the areas where they operate.
Other power companies have begun selling beyond the boundaries of the region, but TEPCO is expected to be the first to expand nationwide, and competition is likely to become even more intense.
