Enclosed in my October electric bill was an “Environmental Disclosure Information” report from Com Ed for the last twelve months.
The biggie, of course, is nuclear power at 58%.
Next is coal at 32%.
4% came from natural gas. Peaker plants, I would imagine.
Also coming in at 1% were hydro and biomass power.
Alternative power sources obviously does not have a high priority for our electric company.
