(Reference) Large industrial Demand
Large industrial user demand in October was down for the ninth consecutive month, falling by 4.7%.

The decline was due to generally sluggish industrial production that depressed performance in all sectors, with particularly poor results noted in the steel and the non-ferrous sectors..
