Immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake, ELIIY Power employees loaded cars with eight "Power Yiile" indoor electricity storage systems and headed for Natori City. Set up at the Natori City Hall Disaster Response Headquarters as well as six emergency shelters within the city, they were used to power TVs and radios that are indispensable for gathering information and to power lighting for illuminating emergency shelter reception areas and safety confirmation notice boards.

As part of the activities undertaken to support reconstruction of areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, ELIIY Power co-sponsored "LIGHT UP NIPPON" on August 11.
"LIGHT UP NIPPON" is an event in which fireworks were simultaneously set off in Pacific Coast areas of three Tohoku prefectures damaged significantly in the Great East Japan Earthquake (Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima), as a gesture of remembrance and a prayer for recovery. This time, which was the third edition of the event, ELIIY Power set up two systems combining a portable "POWER YIILE PLUS" electricity storage system and balloon floodlights at Yamada fishing port, a viewing area for the fireworks display in Yamada-machi, Shimohei County, Iwate Prefecture. Some 5,000 fireworks were set off - the most ever in Yamada-machi - and many local residents gathered to enjoy the display.
