Fuel Mix Graph

Date: 08/17/2018  

This graph charts the fuels New England's power plants are using to generate electricity throughout the course of a day, by megawatt. Electricity imported from neighboring areas is not included.

Fuels in the chart include: coal, hydro, natural gas, nuclear, oil, and renewables. Fuels in the renewable category include: landfill gas, refuse, solar, wind, and wood.

Hydro is not included in the renewable category primarily because the various sources that make up hydroelectric generation (i.e., conventional hydroelectric, run-of-river, pumped storage) are not universally defined as renewable in the six New England states.
