In Roppongi Hills, we supply electricity in the region through its own energy plant (specified electric utility facility).

This is the power generation facility of Roppongi Hills

The power supply facilities owned by Roppongi Hills have a triple backup and are as follows.

1: Generation by city gas
2: Supply from TEPCO
3: Private generation with kerosene

Normally, electricity is generated by city gas (Tokyo Gas), and it is always systematic with TEPCO, and power is continuously supplied even in the event of gas supply stops. Even during power generation by kerosene in the worst case, power supply is secured.

Also, it is said that we have already implemented the following countermeasures, which is quite helpful.

1: Landscape · Decorative lighting is canceled ※ Starting from March 12
2: Shortening business hours of commercial facilities * Started from March 13
※ The following will be done from March 14

10: suspension of the water scenery equipment
11: Shop sign lighting stop
12: Further diminution of parking lot lighting

14: Request for energy conservation cooperation for each tenant company, resident

The above measures are likely to continue until recovery of power supply capacity.
