Revision/Correction

Revisions made to the March 2016 Electric Power Monthly:

April 1, 2016

  • Ten hydroelectric plants in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho under-reported their hydroelectric generation for January 2016. EIA has updated this report with the correct generation for these plants. The inclusion of the corrected data increased January 2016 hydroelectric generation for the following states/regions by these percentages: Oregon (63%); Washington (16%); Idaho (13%); the Pacific Contiguous (25%); U.S. total hydroelectric generation (10.2%); and U.S. total generation (0.7%). These revisions are reflected in tables ES1.A and B, tables 1.1 through 1.3.B, and tables 1.10.A and B. EIA also slightly revised generation from coal, petroleum coke, natural gas, and other energy sources; consumption of coal, petroleum liquids, and natural gas; fuel stocks for coal and petroleum liquids; receipts of coal and petroleum liquids; and the cost of petroleum liquids to independent power producers. These changes are reflected in the report in tables ES1.A through ES2.B and the corresponding Chapter 2, 3, and 4 tables.

March 30, 2016

  • Tables 2.8.A-B through 2.13.A-B, Consumption of Fuels for Electricity Generation by State, by Sector, in the March EPM posted on March 25, 2016, were incorrectly denominated in Trillion Btus rather than physical units (e.g., Thousands Tons; Thousand Barrels; or Million Cubic Feet). The revised tables in this report show those values in the correct physical units. Units in Tables 2.6.A-C, Biogenic Municipal Solid Waste Consumption, were incorrectly labeled as Million Cubic Feet. The unit label has been corrected to Thousands Tons.
