The EIA-906, EIA-920, EIA-923 and predecessor forms
provide monthly and annual data on generation and fuel consumption at
the power plant and prime mover level. A subset of plants,
steam-electric plants 10 MW and above, also provides boiler level and
generator level data. Data for utility plants are available from 1970,
and for non-utility plants from 1999. Beginning with January 2004 data
collection, the EIA-920 was used to collect data from the combined heat
and power plant (cogeneration) segment of the non-utility sector; also
as of 2004, nonutilities filed the annual data for nonutility source and
disposition of electricity. Beginning in 2007, environmental data was
collected on Schedules 8A – 8F of the Form 923 and includes by-product
disposition, financial information, NOX control operations, cooling
system operations and FGP and FGD unit operations. Beginning in 2008,
the EIA-923 superseded the EIA-906, EIA-920, FERC 423, and the EIA-423.
Schedule 2 of the EIA-923 collects the plant level fuel receipts and
cost data previously collected on the FERC and EIA Forms 423. Data for
fuel receipts and costs prior to 2010 are published at /cneaf/electricity/page/eia423.html.
Power plant data prior to 2001 are
published as database (.DBF) files, with separate files for utility and
non-utility plants. For 2001 data and subsequent years, the data are in
Excel spreadsheet files that include data for all plants and make other
changes to the presentation of the data.
Note that beginning with January 2001, the
data for combined heat and power plants (i.e., the plants that provide
data on the EIA-920 form) will only be posted in the combined Excel
The links will allow you to download the
current Excel files, and will take you to the locations from which you
can download the DBF-format utility and non-utility files for 2000 and
earlier. The "Database Notes from EIA" link will take you to information
on changes to the data and other points of interest to users.
