Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The very-small-scale wind bonus sounds like they want to encourage the rollout of vertical spinners and such, in urban settings... as far as I know, pretty worthless in terms of energy, but perhaps for psychological impact?

It's as if they slipped a decimal place. What is being done elsewhere (notably in the UK, Lithuania, Bulgaria?) is incentivising wind installations of less than 500kw, which are not too inefficient, and have fairly low visual and acoustic impact. These are being rolled out (for example in in Northern Ireland), and might be a good fit for Japanese topology, as they don't require major engineering works for difficult mountainous sites.
