(TEPCO) at its headquarters in Tokyo Friday, Oct. 12, 2012. Dale's five-member committee oversees the task force's reform plans, which aim to use the lessons learned at TEPCO's Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in northern Japan. The cash-strapped utility wants to restart that plant, but TEPCO officials denied the reform plans are aimed at improving public image to gain support for the plant's resumption.
