Wikipedia Definition

Gross generation or gross electric output is the total generation of electricity produced by an electric power plant. It is measured at the plant terminal right before the power leaves the station and is measured in kilowatt-hours (kW·h), megawatt-hours (MW·h), or gigawatt-hours (GW·h). Thusgross generation = net generation + usage within the plant (a.k.a. in-house loads), Gross generation or gross electric output is the total generation of electricity produced by an electric power plant. It is measured at the plant terminal right before the power leaves the station and is measured in kilowatt-hours (kW·h), megawatt-hours (MW·h), or gigawatt-hours (GW·h). Thusgross generation = net generation + usage within the plant (also known as in-house loads)
