Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
Data for electricity use is from 2011 Clean Air Cool Planet inventory and aligns with our region, which includes Virginia, NC, and Maryland. More recent data is not readily available because Dominion does not track the mix of electricity that it purchases from other providers, which accounts for over 25% of its portfolio.
