Nuclear crisis prompts Japan energy rethink

Government pushes for solar panels as many strive to conserve energy.

    Japan's nuclear crisis has pushed the country to take another look at its energy policy.

    The government plans to put solar panels on at least 10 million homes.

    In the mean time, many Japanese citizens are trying to do their part to help avoid a further power crisis by conserving as much energy as possible.
