aIncludes photovoltaic and solar thermal electricity net generation at utility-scale and small-scale facilities. Where shown, (s) = Physical unit value less than 0.5 or Btu value less than 0.05.
bIncludes small amount of solar thermal energy consumed as heat by the commercial and industrial sectors. Notes: · Residential consumption cannot be presented here in kilowatthours because it covers both distributed solar heat and small-scale
photovoltaic (PV) generation. See data files for residential small-scale PV generation in kilowatthours. · There are no direct fuel costs for
photovoltaic and solar thermal energy. · Totals may not equal sum of components due to independent rounding. See Section 5 of the Technical
Notes for explanation of estimation methodology.
cExcludes small amount of distributed solar heat included in the residential sector. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
