Decision postponed on 37.5 MW wind farm in eastern Japan

Electricity supplier Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) and wind power group Eurus Energy Japan Corporation have announced they are indefinitely postponing a decision on whether to build a 37.5 wind farm in eastern Japan. The planned 25 turbines are slated to be installed before the end March 2007 in a mountainous area on Izu Peninsula, southwest of Tokyo. But local environmentalists have asked the national government to halt the project, concerned that it would harm marshlands and other ecosystems. A TEPCO group official says the area is "unmistakably suited to the production of wind power," and has promised to deal with the environmental concerns.
