Hello everyone

If China produced 5,398 billion kWh electricity and consumed 5,322. Can I say:


5,398 billion kWh electricity was produced by China and about 70 billion kWh less was consumed by it.

Many many thanks

    5,398 billion kWh electricity was produced by China and about 70 billion kWh less was consumed by it.
    I suppose it's grammatical (except for a missing "of" before "electricity") but it doesn't sound very natural to my ears.

    5,398 billion kWh of electricity was produced by China out of which only about 70 billion kWh was not used/consumed.

    (You'd normally specify where or when the 5398 billion kWh was generated.)
