Electricity use in the first two months this year rose 12.32 percent year on year to 702.5 billion kwh.

In January and February, the power use of the primary industry rose 3.91 percent to 12.9 billion kwh year on year, the secondary industry consumption grew 11.41 percent to 507.3 billion kwh, the tertiary industry consumption climbed 15.88 percent to 85.2 billion kwh, and household consumption rose 15.37 percent to 97.1 billion kwh.
