aIncludes small amounts of solar thermal and photovoltaic energy consumed by the commercial sector. See
Section 5 of the Technical Notes for explanation of estimation methodology.
Notes: · There are no direct fuel costs for solar thermal, photovoltaic, and wind energy. · Totals may not
equal sum of components due to independent rounding.
Where shown, (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
