aNatural gas as it is consumed; includes supplemental gaseous fuels that are commingled with natural
gas.
Where shown, R = Revised data, — = No consumption, and (s) = Value less than 0.05 million dollars.
bWood, wood-derived fuels, and biomass waste. Prior to 2001, includes non-biomass waste. Notes: Expenditure totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding. · The electric
power sector comprises electricity-only and combined-heat-and-power (CHP) plants within the NAICS 22
category whose primary business is to sell electricity, or electricity and heat, to the public. · Through 1988,
data is for electric utilities only. Beginning in 1989, data includes independent power producers.
cElectricity imported from Canada and Mexico. Web Page: All data are available at http://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.cfm.
