aIncludes 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 consists of 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 are for electric utilities
only. Beginning in 1989, data include independent power producers.
cElectricity imported from Canada and Mexico. Web Page: All data are available at https://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.php.
dThere are no direct fuel costs for hydroelectric, geothermal, solar, or wind energy. Sources: Data sources, estimation procedures, and assumptions are described in the Technical Notes.
