1 Beginning with the 2003 data, the Transportation Sector replaces the Other Sector for the sales of power to electrified rail and urban transit systems whose primary propulsive energy source is electricity.

2 Municipals could be described as cities, towns, and villages, which purchase or generate electric power primarily for distribution and resale to the citizens within their municipal borders.  They are generally regulated by elected city councils.

3 A political subdivision is similar to counties, utility districts, or irrigation districts.

4 A cooperative electric utility is an electric utility legally established to be owned by and operated for the benefit of those using its service.  The utility company will generate, transmit, and/or distribute supplies of electric energy to a specified area not being serviced by another utility.  Such ventures are generally exempt from federal income tax laws.  Most electric cooperatives have been initially financed by the Rural Utilities Service (prior Rural Electrification Administration), U.S. Department of Agriculture.

5 State ownership refers to statewide organizations whose scope is larger than county level.

6 Federal utilities are federal government agencies whose primary function is the production and sale of electricity, either wholesale or retail.  They include utilities under the supervision of the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of the Interior.
