List of power stations in Japan

This page is a list of power stations in Japan that are publicly or privately owned. Non-renewable power stations are those that run on coal, fuel oils, nuclear power, and natural gas, while renewable power stations run on fuel sources such as biomass, geothermal heat, moving water, solar rays, tides, waves and the wind.
