The data in this chart comes from the July 2017 Benchmarking Air Emissions of the 100 Largest Electric Power Producers in the United States, based on 2015 generation and emissions (see page 21 of the report). This report is the product of a collaborative effort among Bank of America, Calpine, Entergy, Exelon, Tenaska, Ceres, and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). Please note this report is traditionally produced annually. The next report is planned to be released in the summer of 2016 with data from 2014.
