Hirafuzaka Heating & Electricity

The BID and Kutchan Town together will bear the local share of sidewalk electricity costs for the Hirafu-zaka Street road heating.


The Town will bear all of the electricity costs until projects, including road heating installation and beautification work on Hirafu-zaka Street, are completed.

The BID's share of the sidewalk heating electricity cost includes an additional 10% to the original estimate by Hokkaido Government, for the electricity rate increase from September 2014.
