The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) interactive U.S. Energy Mapping System includes the location of U.S. electric
The map layer information for the U.S. Energy Mapping System includes a link to the shapefile for the power plants layer, which includes a database file (dbf) that has the street address, zip code, city, county, state, latitude, and longitude for each power plant. The dbf file can be opened with spreadsheet software. EIA does not provide shapefiles for the transmission line layer, but it does provide a link to the source of the shapefiles for the electric transmission lines layer.
The street address, zip code, city, county, state, latitude, and longitude of U.S. power plants are in the "PlantYyy" file of the survey Form EIA-860 database. The county, state, latitude, and longitude of U.S. power plants are in the EIA-860M data files. EIA's Application Programming Interface (API) also contains the latitude and longitude of power plants. You must register and receive an API key to access that API series.
EIA cooperates with Canada and Mexico in publishing a North American (energy) infrastructure map, with information for Canada, Mexico, and the United States including the location of
The map data and services for the North American energy infrastructure map includes Excel files and shapefiles with the latitude and longitude of the power plants and transmission line border crossings.
EIA does not publish similar maps or geographic information on the location of electric power plants and transmission lines in any other countries.
