Umm... I'm only familiar with United States regulation, but the way I understood it was this:

1 reactor: 2 backup generators
2 reactors: 3 backup generators

These are demanded based on the probability safety assessment for the reactors by the NRC. I'm wondering if I'm reading this in an over-simplified manner, or if it would actual be legal to operate a single reactor site in Japan with only one backup generator.

Love your blog, great contribution to the discussion going on!
