Fuel Mix Graph

Date: 12/16/2018  

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 graph include: natural gas, nuclear, coal, oil, hydro, other, and renewable. Fuels in the renewable category include: landfill gas, methane, refuse, solar, steam, wind, and wood. The other category contains the output of energy storage devices and demand response.

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.
