A similar reality applied to the industrial sector, where Gelly (2003, 2010) notes that firms could use thermoelectricity and self-generation, and electricity providers deployed important efforts to sway them (by offering them substantially lower prices): in 1924, close to 30% of electricity used by industrial establishments came from self-generation as opposed to less than 10% in 1934 (Gelly 2010).
