Kyushu Electric Power revealed that power demand for industry and other large users in Kyushu fell 2.4% in October from the year-before period to 2.168 billion kWh. This is the first decline in demand for these users since December 2003, or a period of 58 months. The drop was attributed to production cutbacks in the local steel, semiconductor, and auto manufacturing sectors.
