Note: We recommend you to pay your electricity bills by automatic transfer, as it is an economic and convenient method.
In order to be able to use electricity when you move into your new address, you must turn on the circuit breakers and the ground fault circuit interrupter. When you do so and the power comes on, please fill out the necessary items in the postcard provided and mail the postcard. Should the power not come on when you turn on the breakers, etc., please contact the nearest Chugoku Electric Power Service Office.
Contracts for power for electric water heaters, commercial air conditioners and similar must be applied for in advance. Customers who have made such advance application do not need to send in the postcard.
Note: We determine each customer's contract type (Flat-Rate Residential Lighting, Public Street Lighting, Meter-Rate Lighting A and B, Low-Voltage Power, Night Only Power) according to the capacity and other characteristics of their electric equipment. Therefore customers must formally notify us if their electrical equipment is added to, changed or taken away.
For example you must notify us if you have an electric water heater put in, or trade in your old electric water heater for a new one, or have your electric water heater disposed of. (Consult the nearest Chugoku Electric Power Service Office for more details.)
Japan uses two(2) different power supply frequencies: 50 Hz in eastern Japan and 60 Hz in western Japan.(The boundary between the eastern and western frequency regions is situated about the Fuji River in Shizuoka Prefecture and the Itoi River in Niigata Prefecture.)That means that Chugoku Electric Power uses 60 Hz.
Each item of electric equipment has "50 Hz","60 Hz", or"50/60 Hz" indicated on it. Equipment with the "50/60 Hz" indication can be used anywhere in the country, but equipment on which a single frequency is indicated is for use only in the applicable region.
Check the frequency indications on your electric equipment when you change address.
Note: The above information is broadly speaking accurate but the actual facts may differ somewhat depending on the equipment models. For further details consult the electrical goods store or manufacturer.
