California's Source of Electricity

Recently, I have been looking around online and I researched too. I found out California's source of electricity. So far, we use:

  • 47% gas
  • 20% hydro
  • 18% nuclear
  • seven% geothermal
  • three% biomass
  • two% wind
  • one% oil
  • less then one% of coal
  • less than one% of solar
The San Francisco County's Hunter's Point use:
  • Natural gas, our primary fuel type
  • Four generators
  • 427 MW nameplate capacity
  • 619,481 MW hours of annual net generation

  1. So, California uses 47 percent gas. Irene, do you know how much of that number is for cars and how much is for other uses like heating homes and other buildings? — Ms. Moorhead
