Description

The Austin Energy system average carbon intensity is calculated as total greenhouse gas emissions at the point of combustion in pounds of CO2-equivalents divided by net generation in kWh from all Austin Energy resources. Generation resources include natural gas, coal and nuclear-powered units owned by Austin Energy, renewable resources owned by Austin Energy and all purchased power from renewable and non-renewable resources. Sales of GreenChoice? energy are subtracted from the net generation total since GreenChoice? customers can claim their carbon intensity to be 0 lbs of CO2-equivalents/kWh. Carbon dioxide equivalent is a measure used to compare the emissions of different greenhouse gases based on their global warming potential (GWP). Austin Energy?s system average carbon intensity is shown in pounds of CO2-eq/kWh per calendar year.
