(Reference) Large industrial Demand
Large industrial user demand in November was down for the tenth consecutive month, falling by 5.5%.

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.
