17.Kyushu Electric Power Co. Reihoku Power Station
Do you know where the electricity that is indispensable to our life is made? Reihoku Power Station is a coal-only thermal power station that uses imported coal as its fuel. It is a macroscale thermal power station with an output of 1.4 million kilowatts. Together, the first and second units provide two-thirds of the electricity needed to meet the demand in Kumamoto prefecture. There is a large room to tour and learn about the equipment used to make electricity such as large turbines and generators. The night view of the power station is almost like something out of the world of science fiction, and it is one of the places people visit on a drive.
