Analysis: High costs keep Japan focus on nuclear

FILE - This Jan. 26, 2012 file photo shows the No. 4 reactor, left, and the No. 3 reactor at Kansai Electric Power Co's Ohi nuclear power plant in Ohi, Fukui prefecture, western Japan. The No. 4 reactor restarted in July 2012, along with the plant’s No. 3 reactor, which went offline for maintenance on Sept. 2, 2013. Japan will once again be without atomic energy as its only operating nuclear reactor, the No. 4 reactor at Ohi plant, goes offline Sunday, Sept. 15 for refueling and maintenance, and other plants remained closed for intensified safety checks following the 2011 meltdowns at the tsunami-stricken plant in Fukushima.
