'El Pio Denki' is a power supply plan provided by El Pio Co., Ltd., which emphasized the simplicity of the price plan and the low price. However, after December 2020, prices in the wholesale electricity market continued to rise due to a shortage of fuel such as natural gas, and in 2022, the European natural gas market surged due to the impact of the Russian army's invasion of Ukraine. As a result, 'electric power futures,' 'electric power wholesale market,' and 'purchase price from power plants that use natural gas as fuel for power generation' rose in Japan, and power supply procurement became difficult. On the 18th, new applications for 'El Pio Denki' were suspended.

In addition to the above situation, the wholesale electricity market has risen to 2 to 5 times the price of 2021 due to the impact of the earthquake off Fukushima in March 2022, making it difficult to continue providing electricity services. It was said that. Elpio Co., Ltd. said, 'If nothing is done, the price will be significantly higher than 1.5 to 2 times as much as before, and other electric power companies will be overwhelmingly cheaper, causing inconvenience to customers. As a result, we have decided to suspend the provision of services for all areas and menus of 'El Pio Denki', 'and announced the suspension of services for' El Pio Denki. '

The power supply service suspension date for 'El Pio Denki' is set to April 30, 2022, after which the power supply will be suspended in all areas of 'El Pio Denki'. For this reason, 'El Pio Denki' subscribers need to switch to another company's power plan.
