ELECTRICITY USE REPORTED DROPPING IN SOME PLACES

Chatanooga Free Press - Electricity use in portions of the USA has fallen by several percent, with 2 to 10% reductions in consumption recently reported in the Tennesee Valley - other areas may see higher reductions, some lower. Whether the net cause of this trend is consumers cutting back in response to hard times, cutbacks done for environment sake, industrial closures and shift reductions in response to the recession, or some combination of these, is left to speculation.

There aren't any strait lines in real life. Even ginormous explosions in consumption make a sawtooth.
