Supplementary notes

Beginning in 1989, data are for electric utilities and independent power producers. 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.

Figures include anthracite, bituminous coal, subbituminous coal, lignite, waste coal, and coal synfuel.

The values have been rounded to provide a better understanding of the statistic.
