SHORTER CIRCUITS: Japan's government has approved a proposal to revamp its troubled electricity industry and foster more competition by splitting power generation and distribution into separate businesses.

TSUNAMI SHOCK: The plan is meant to modernize the power grid following the shut-down of almost all nuclear power plants after the March 2011 tsunami disaster.

PM'S PLUG: First proposed years earlier, the plan was included in a slew of economic reforms discussed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's administration that are intended to improve Japan's competitiveness.
