NA Not available.
1 Includes coal, anthracite, culm and coal waste.
2 Includes petroleum, petroleum coke, diesel, kerosene,
and petroleum sludge and tar.
3 Includes butane, ethane, propane, and other gases.
4 Included in "Natural gas."
5 Includes wood, wood waste, peat, wood liquors, railroad ties,
pitch and wood sludge.
6 Includes municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, straw,
tires, landfill gases and other waste.
7 Nuclear reactor and generator at Argonne National Laboratory
used primarily for research and development in testing reactor
fuels as well as for training. The generation from the unit is
used for internal consumption.
8 Includes hydrogen, sulfur, batteries, chemicals, and spent
sulfite liquor. Data previously published for other energy sources
in 1989 and 1990 have been reclassified and are included in the
category that best reflects its characteristics.
9 Includes purchases, interchanges, and exchanges of electric
energy with utilities and other nonutilities.
10 Sales, interachanges, and exchanges or electric energy with utilities.
11 Includes sales, interchanges, and exchanges of electric energy
with utilities and other nonutilities. The disparity in this data
and data reported on other EIA surveys occurs due to differences
in the respondent universe. The Form EIA-867 is filed by
nonutilities reporting the energy delivered, while other data sources
are filed by electric utilities reporting energy received.
Differences in terminology and accounting procedures attribute to
the disparity. In addition, since the frame for the Form EIA-867
is derived from utility surveys the Form EIA-867 universe lags 1 year.

Electric Utility: A corporation, person, agency, authority, or other legal entity or instrumentality that owns and/or operates facilities within the United States, its territories, or Puerto Rico for the generation, transmission, distribution, or sale of electric energy primarily for use by the public and files forms listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 18, Part 141. Facilities that qualify as cogenerators or small power producers under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA) are not considered electric utilities.

Energy: The capacity for doing work as measured by the capability of doing work (potential energy) or the conversion of this capability to motion (kinetic energy). Energy has several forms, some of which are easily convertible and can be changed to another form useful for work. Most of the world's convertible energy comes from fossil fuels that are burned to produce heat that is then used as a transfer medium to mechanical or other means in order to accomplish tasks. Electrical energy is usually measured in kilowatthours, while heat energy is usually measured in British thermal units.

Net Generation: Gross generation minus plant use from all electric utility owned plants. The energy required for pumping at a pumped-storage plant is regarded as plant use and must be deducted from the gross generation.

Net Summer Capability: The steady hourly output, which generating equipment is expected to supply to system load exclusive of auxiliary power, as demonstrated by tests at the time of summer peak demand.

Nonutility Power Producer: A corporation, person, agency, authority, or other legal entity or instrumentality that owns electric generating capacity and is not an electric utility. Nonutility power producers include qualifying cogenerators, qualifying small power pro ducers, and other nonutility generators (including independent power producers) without a designated franchised service area, and which do not file forms listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 18, Part 141.

Power: The rate at which energy is transferred. Electrical energy is usually measured in watts. Also used for a measurement of capacity.
