Description

This is a generator level data file that includes specific information about generators at electric power plants owned and operated by electric utilities and nonutilities (including independent power producers, combined heat and power producers, and other industrials). The file contains generator-specific information such as initial date of commercial operation, prime movers, generating capacity, energy sources, status of existing and proposed generators, proposed changes to existing generators, county and State location (including power plant address), ownership, and FERC qualifying facility status. Also included are data related to the ability to use multiple fuels; specifically, data on co-firing and fuel switching are included.
