NM = Not meaningful due to large relative standard error or excessive percentage change.
Notes: See Glossary for definitions. Values are preliminary. See Technical Notes for a discussion of the sample design for the Form EIA-923.
Negative generation denotes that electric power consumed for plant use exceeds gross generation.
Totals may not equal sum of components because of independent rounding. Percentage change is calculated before rounding.
Sources: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Form EIA-923, Power Plant Operations Report;
Estimated distributed solar photovoltaic generation and distributed solar photovoltaic capacity are based on data from Form EIA-826, Form EIA-861 and from estimation methods described in the technical notes.
