View electricity data for year:
Beginning in 2012 the U.S. Energy Information Agency reduced the reporting requirements for “small utilities”. These utilities are not required to submit residential, commercial and industrial breakouts. They just supply summary information from all sectors.
Natural gas prices are only available at the state level. Prices are average prices for the reporting period. EIA does not maintain data on the service territory of natural gas utilities.
