China's power generation in October hit 609.4 TWh, an increase of 4.6% year on year, compared with a growth of 5.3% in the month prior, according to the latest data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on November 16.
It, however, fell 3.5% compared with the output in September, due to the softening power demand.
Thermal power generation was 399.1 TWh, edging down 1.5% on a yearly basis and down 5.49% from September, while hydropower generation grew 25.4% year on year to 134.9 TWh, which was 2.6% lower than the previous month.
China's nuclear power output was 28.7 TWh, down 0.3% year on year, and 10.03% month on month. Wind power generation was 35.1 TWh, up 14.7% from the year-ago level and 31.46% month on month, data showed.
Solar power generation was 11.6 TWh in October, up 8.1% on the year, and down 4.13% on the month.
Power generation during January-October added up to 6,028.8 TWh in China, edging up 1.4% year on year, 0.5 percentage point higher than growth in January-September.
Specifically, thermal power generation was 4,233.3 TWh, down 0.4% on a yearly basis, but hydropower generation ticked up 4.2% from the year-ago level to 1,044.4 TWh.
Nuclear power generation was 298.7 TWh, up 5.7% on the year. Wind power generation was 332.7 TWh, up 10.5% year on year. Solar power generation was 119.6 TWh, growing 7.9% year on year.
In October, the average daily power generation reached 19.66 TWh nationwide, down 1.39 TWh from September.
