Kyushu Electric Power Co. plans to supply up to 100,000 kw of electricity to Tokyo Electric Power Co., which is due to shut down all 17 of its nuclear reactors by mid-April for safety checks, Kyushu Electric officials said Wednesday.

Drawing on reserve generating capacity at Kyushu Electric’s thermal power plants, the assistance would be extended for 10 hours during the day on weekdays from April through August, the officials said.
