Electricity Demand in September 2003(Confirmed Report)

(October. 31, 2003)


Demand Overview (Total across the 10 Power Companies)

@›@Total demand in September was up 0.6% to 76.0 billion kWh across the 10 companies.

(Demand Excluding Extra High Voltage Demand)

@›@Commercial and lighting demand posted increases of 1.4% and 0.9% respectively. The relatively small increase in lighting demand resulted from a shorter meter-reading period, which overcame increased demand for cooling caused by lower temperatures from late August to mid-September.
@@E@Lighting Demand (up 0.9%, 22.80 billion kWh)
@@E@Commercial Demand (up 1.4%, 16.23 billion kWh)

(Reference) Large Industrial Demand (up 0.8%, 22.72 billion kWh)

@›LLarge industrial user demand in September was up for the first time in three months, increasing by 0.8%. The increase was attributable to an upswing in the chemical and machinery sectors after an interval of three months.
