Coal Expenditures
in Nebraska by Sector

In 2012, coal expenditures in Nebraska were $427.6 million, which was a decrease of 2.4 percent from 2011 expenditures. This expenditure level is the first year since 2004 that a new record was not set. New records had been set each year from 2005 to 2011. Before 2005, the record had been held by the year 1984 when expenditures were $163.3 million. In 2012, the electric power sector spent $392.2 million (92 percent of the total), and the industrial sector spent $35.4 million (8 percent of the total). If coal was consumed in the commercial, residential, and transportation sectors in 2012, the expenditures rounded to zero.

The expenditures are in nominal dollars to provide a better comparison.
