An interesting general analysis on TEPCO.

It’s easy to distrust a company that admitted to falsify 200 documents over 25 years.




Tepco is the largest power utility in Japan.

In normal times, it supplies about a third of the country’s electricity.


In 2002, the Japanese government accused Tepco of false reporting in routine inspections of nuclear facilities and of concealing information about safety lapses over many years.


Tepco eventually admitted to 200 occasions in which information had been falsified between 1977 and 2002. Further revelations of past concealment emerged five years later.
