Hi. I'm looking at the impact of a data center (NAICS 518210; IMPLAN 436). According to the commodity demand balance sheet for this industry (at the national level in 2019), spending on electricity is 0.7% of industry output, which seems wildly low to me. I haven't (yet) traced this back to the sourcing in the BEA IO tables, but do you have any thoughts as to why that value is so low, and how I might estimate a more reasonable one? Thanks.
