Electricity Generation by Fuel Source (Percent Change)

The graph below displays change in electricity generation from 2005 to 2015 by fuel or resource type (e.g., coal, natural gas, nuclear, wind, solar) in megawatt hours (MWh) for the selected states or regions.

Hover over a bar graph to view more information about the change in electricity generated by a particular fuel source. Some states had only negligible generation from renewable sources in 2005, and so a percent change cannot be properly computed. Click on a jurisdiction in the key below the graph to remove/add that jurisdiction to the graph.
