ELECTRIC POWER MONTHLY & ELECTRICITY MONTHLY UPDATE – July 2013

The Electricity Monthly Update, July 2013 edition presenting May 2013 data, has been released.  Highlights include:

  • Retail sales decreased 3.2 percent compared to last year, due to a significantly warmer May 2012.
  • All regions of the country saw a decrease in electricity generation from natural gas compared to the previous May. This reflects decreased demand and the loss of natural gas's price advantage over coal.
  • For several months in 2013, Illinois has had the largest year-over-year decline in average revenue per kilowatthour. This month, the 4.7 percent decline in Illinois fell below the 5.2 percent drop in Hawaii.
