The Cost of Decommissioning Fukushima Plant

The initial cost of decommissioning Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant was estimated to be USD $19 billion (2 trillion yen). But now it appears that actual expenses are escalating much beyond what was previously projected. The decommissioning effort has already made the coffers lighter by USD $770 million (80 billion yen) over just the last three years.
