Three major cities in the Kansai region — Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe — jointly urged Kansai Electric Power Co. on Monday to make greater efforts to part with nuclear power in light of the triple-meltdown crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant.

In a written request, the three municipalities also demanded that Kepco disclose information on the demand and supply of electricity in the area as well as lower and stabilize its rates.
