Environmental Disclosure Information for EDUs and CRES Providers

The PUCO’s Environmental Disclosure Rules require competitive retail electric supply (CRES) providers and electric distribution utilities (EDUs) to supply their customers with specified environmental information in a standardized format.  Included in this format is a component which conveys regional environmental data.

The data below represents the regional generation resource mix and air emissions to be incorporated within the 2014 environmental disclosure forms. The data for use in 2014 is more up-to-date than previous years’ data. The 2014 data is EIA data from June 2012 to May 2013. The 2013 data is EIA data from January 2010 to December 2010. The more up-to-date data for 2014 results in a larger decrease in the coal percentage and a larger increase in the natural gas percentage than that which would have resulted if EIA data from January 2011 to December 2011 had been used.
