(February. 27.2004)


Demand Overview (Total across the 10 Power Companies)

@@Total demand in January was down 1.8% to 76.2 billion kWh across the 10 companies.

(Demand Excluding Extra High Voltage Demand)

@@Lighting demand was down 3.2% and commercial demand remained even. The result was due to decreased demand for heating caused by higher temperatures from December to early January.
@@E@Lighting Demand (down 3.2%, 288.84 billion kWh)
@@E@Commercial Demand (0%, 13.54 billion kWh)

(Reference)Large Industrial Demand (up 0.4%, 20.95 billion kWh)
