  with previous form data (EIA-860A/860B)                                        

Release Date: October 10, 2013 for Final 2012 data
Next Release Date: February 2015
Re-Release 2012 data: December 4, 2013 (CORRECTION)

 

The survey Form EIA-860 collects generator-level specific information about existing and planned generators and associated environmental equipment at electric power plants with 1 megawatt or greater of combined nameplate capacity. Summary level data can be found in the Electric Power Annual.

Detailed data are compressed (zip) and contain the following files:

  • LayoutYyy Provides a directory of all (published) data elements collected on the Form EIA-860 together with the related description, specific file location(s), and, where appropriate, an explanation of codes.
  • GeneratorYyy Contains generator-level data for the surveyed generators, split into three tabs. The "Exist" tab includes those generators which are currently operating, out of service or on standby; the "Prop" tab includes those generators which are planned and not yet in operation; and the "Ret_IP" tab includes those generators which were cancelled prior to completion and operation and retired generators at existing plants (does not include data for retired generators at plants at which all generators have been retired).
  • PlantYyy - Contains plant-level data for the generators surveyed in all available years.
  • UtilityYyy - Contains utility-level data for the plants and generators surveyed in the reporting year.
  • OwnerYyy Contains owner and/or operator data for generators with shared ownership and generators that are wholly-owned by an entity other than the operator (generators not appearing in the file are wholly-owned by their operator).
  • MultiFuelYyy Contains data on fuel-switching and the use of multiple fuels by surveyed generators, split into three tabs: "Exist," "Prop," and "Ret_IP." See GeneratorsYyy above for a description of the tabs.
  • InterconnectYyy Contains interconnection data for the surveyed generators.
  • EnviroAssocYyy Contains boiler association data for the environmental equipment data collected on the Form EIA-860. The "Boiler_Gen" identifies which boilers are associated with each generator; the "Boiler_Cool" tab shows which cooling systems are associated with each boiler; the "Boiler_FGD" tab shows which flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems are associated with each boiler; the "Boiler_FGP" tab shows which flue gas particulate (FGP) collectors are associated with each boiler; and the "Boiler_SF" tab shows which stacks and flues are associated with each boiler.
  • EnviroEquipYyy Contains environmental equipment data for the surveyed generators. The "Boiler" tab collects boiler data as collected on Schedule 6, Parts B, and C of the Form EIA-860; "Control" tab contains emission data as collected on Schedule 6, Parts D and E; the "Cooling" tab collects cooling system data as collected on Schedule 6, Part F; the "FGD" tab collects FGD data as collected on Schedule 6, Part H; the "FGP" tab collects FGP data as collected on Schedule 6, Part G; and the "StackFlue" tab collects stack and flue data as collected on Schedule 6, Part I.
