The Hamaoka Nuclear Power Generation Plant has been shut down in order to meet the demands of the Prime Minister.

We have to save electricity this summer, but I think service industries will be most affected by this predicament, because they will have to reduce their use of air conditioning to save energy.
I guess that department stores and restaurants are afraid that sales will be lackluster, as customers usually expect comfortable, pleasant places to shop in and eat at during the hot summer, when enjoying their leisure hours.
They must close their doors in order to prevent cool, air -conditioned air from leaving through their wide-open front doors.

I cannot blame them because I didn't try to save energy last summer, though I must change my attitude this time.
