CORRECTED-TABLE-China power consumption breakdown for September

(Corrects primary industry power use and total power plant utilisation)
    Oct 16 (Reuters) - China consumed 457 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity in
September, up 2.7 percent from a year earlier, data from the National Energy Administration
showed.
    Over the first nine months, power consumption increased 3.9 percent on the year to 4.0975
trillion kWh, the administration said.
    Power generation and consumption registered their first year-on-year declines in four years
in August, with summer temperatures much lower than the record-breaking rates of 2013, slashing
air conditioner demand. 
    Following is a breakdown of China's power consumption and other data for September, posted
on the administration's website (www.nea.gov.cn).
