1Anthracite, bituminous coal, subbituminous coal, and lignite. 7Through 1998, data are for electric utilities only.  Beginning in 1999, data are for electric utilities and
independent power producers.
2Fuel oil nos. 1, 2, and 4.  For 1973-1979, data are for gas turbine and internal combustion plant stocks
of petroleum.  For 1980-2000, electric utility data also include small amounts of kerosene and jet fuel.
R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  NA=Not available.  
3Fuel oil nos. 5 and 6.  For 1973-1979, data are for steam plant stocks of petroleum.  For 1980-2000,
electric utility data also include a small amount of fuel oil no. 4.
Notes:  -  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.  -  See Note 1, "Coverage of Electricity Statistics," and Note 2, "Classification of Power Plants
Into Energy-Use Sectors," at end of section.  -  Totals may not equal sum of components due to
independent rounding.
4Jet fuel and kerosene.  Through 2003, data also include a small amount of waste oil. Web Pages:  -  See http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/monthly/#electricity for updated monthly and
annual data.  -  See http://www.eia.gov/electricity/ for related information.
5Petroleum coke is converted from short tons to barrels by multiplying by 5. Sources:  -  1949-September 1977-Federal Power Commission, Form FPC-4, "Monthly Power Plant

6Distillate fuel oil and residual fuel oil; beginning in 1970, also includes petroleum coke; and beginning
in 2002, also includes other liquids.
