We generate reliable, affordable electricity from an increasingly cleaner mix of energy sources. Across our eight-state service territory, more than 40% of our electricity in 2019 came from carbon-free sources: biomass, hydroelectric and nuclear plants, wind turbines and solar panels. The rest was generated by fossil fuels, including coal and natural gas.
In total, the plants we own are capable of producing more than 18,700 megawatts of electricity. One megawatt of power provides enough electricity to serve nearly 1,100 typical homes.
The charts below show by fuel type the energy on our systems in 2019. The energy includes electricity produced at Xcel Energy plants, purchased from others, and supplied through our renewable choice programs for customers (Windsource®, Renewable*Connect®, Solar*Rewards® and Solar*Rewards Community®).
