aIncludes distributed photovoltaic and solar thermal energy used in the commercial and industrial sectors.
See Section 5 of the Technical Notes for explanation of estimation methodology.
Notes: · There are no direct fuel costs for photovoltaic and solar thermal energy. · Totals may not equal
sum of components due to independent rounding.
bAt facilities with capacity of 1 megawatt or greater. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
Where shown, (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05.
