NTD – Japanese woman learned to live without paying electricity bills

For the past 10 years, Tokyo resident Chikako Fujii hasn’t paid a dime in electricity bills. According to NTD, the 62-year-old woman generates her own electricity using four solar panels installed on her balcony. On sunny days, she reheats food in black pans in the sun. And in cloudy weather, Chikako sits down on his exercise bike, which also generates electricity.

Chikako Fujii lives in Tokyo and hasn’t paid a dime for electricity for the past 10 years.

The 62-year-old woman generates her own electricity using four solar panels installed on her balcony.

On average, on a sunny day, you can get 1000 watts with them. This is enough to use several electrical appliances, and even turn on the lights in the evenings.

Fuji makes money by dyeing fabrics. She does not have a TV, speakers, washing machine, air conditioner or vacuum cleaner.

On sunny days, she reheats food in black pans in the sun.

And if you need to cook rice or bake a cake, then he uses a solar cooker.

CHIKAKO FUJI, Tokyo resident: On a sunny day, a piece of fish can be cooked in about an hour, and a piece of chicken breast in an hour and a half.

She also uses candles to heat food.

CHIKAKO FUJI: I started living this way after the big East Japan earthquake in 2011. Shortly after the disaster, there were several sudden power cuts here. I decided that I had to provide my own electricity and installed a solar panel.

And on rainy days, Chikako sits down on his exercise bike. It also generates electricity. One warm-up is enough to power a light bulb for three hours.

Some call her lifestyle spartan. But the Japanese woman says she likes it. At some point, because of the heat, she thought about abandoning such savings. But now, in connection with the global energy crisis, she has decided to postpone it for now.

So, recently she bought a small refrigerator powered by solar panels.
