Japan Dec nuclear plant usage at 15.2 pct vs 67.9 pct yr ago

TOKYO, Jan 10 (Reuters) - The average nuclear power plant utilisation rate at Japan’s 10 atomic energy generators fell to 15.2 percent in December from 67.9 percent a year earlier, a Reuters calculation based on monthly trade ministry data showed.
