Japan's Okinawa Electric Power Company will lay a submarine cable between Okinawa Island and Tokashiki Island. On March 18th, it could supply power for Kerama Islands through the submarine cable from the main land. The submarine cable is about 30.8 km long, of which over the island  is 23.69 kilometers , and was one of the longest cable laid by Okinawa Electric Power Company. Its transmission voltage rating is 22 kV, which will be the Japan's longest cable.

Okinawa Electric Power Company began an investigation on laying lines in last May. On the 18th days of this month, electricity will be transported through Tokashiki island to Hakone Island, Aka Island and Geruma island.

So far, Kerama Islands generated electricity through diesel power plant of generating power station in Tokashiki Island, then delivered to other islands. However, the cost of diesel as the fuel to generate electricity is higher than coal and liquefied natural gas, and the emergency equipment is needed to consider when disaster happens. By laying submarine cable system , it will link the main island and seek stability of costs and electricity supply.
