Sources of electricity for 2016.[1]

The information used to calculate values is from the Electric Power Monthly, February 2015 and 2014 published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Renewable generation does not include amounts for 'rooftop solar'. Only utility scale generation from solar sources is included.
