However, the situation, predictably, to worsen again within summer months when energy consumption sharply increases with increase in use of conditioners.
West of Japan doesn't depend on an energy lack. It occurs therefore, various electric frequencies are used in east and the western Japan that does impossible for pass of great volumes of the electric power from western in east Japan. Hokkaido isn't mentioned, or because electric cables
between Hokkaido and Honshu doesn't allow more exchange of the power.
