*Note: In earlier years the in-state coal number included coal fired power plants owned by California utilities located out-of-state. The 2007 methodology of the calculation the fuel mix of imports is based on specific imports based on reports of California load serving entities and estimated regional non-specified imports. The methodology and values are reported in the appendix of the 2007 Net System Power Report - Final Adopted Commission Report (http://www.energy.ca.gov/2008publications/CEC-200-2008-002/CEC-200-2008-002-CMF.PDF).
