(Reference) Large industrial Demand
Large industrial user demand in December was down for the eleventh consecutive month, falling by 6.0%.


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.
