Said BofA/ML back last September:

Tokyo Electric Power (9501, TKECF, A-3-7 Underperform, ¥2,423), announced its “2020 Vision: Medium to Long-term Growth Declaration” on 13 September. The plan calls for total operating cash flow of more than ¥12tn to be generated in the 10 years from FY3/12 to FY3/21, with ¥2.5tn allocated to investments into low- carbon energy sources such as nuclear power, ¥1tn to investments into growth businesses such as overseas projects, and the remaining ¥8.5tn to regular capital investments (¥5tn by our estimate), accumulation of capital (¥2.5tn), and shareholder returns (¥1tn). Shareholder returns will be based on a stable annual dividend of ¥60 per share, with plans for a consolidated dividend payout ratio of at least 30%. A ¥60 per share dividend over 10 years works out to total shareholder returns of ¥810bn. A ¥70 per share dividend over 10 years would be ¥950bn.
