* Mercury emissions rate is in pounds per gigawatt hour (lbs/GWh).  Mercury emissions data is for coal plants only.
All averages are weighted averages based on the total generation and emissions associated with each category.
See the "Benchmarking Air Emissions of the 100 Largest Electric Power Producers in the United States" (2014) for
a discussion of the methodology.
