Other Competitive Supply Activities

Our wholesale marketing and risk management operation participates in global coal sourcing activities by providing coal for the variable or fixed supply needs of North American and international power generators. In addition, our wholesale marketing and risk management operation provides products and services to upstream (exploration and production) and downstream (transportation and storage) natural gas customers. We also include in our other competitive supply activities the results from our synthetic fuel processing facility in South Carolina.


We hold up to a 50% voting interest in 24 operating energy projects that consist of electric generation (primarily relying on alternative fuel sources), fuel processing, or fuel handling facilities and are either qualifying facilities under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 or otherwise exempt from, or not subject to, the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935. Each electric generating plant sells its output to a local utility under long-term contracts.

        We also provide operation and maintenance services, including testing and start-up to owners of electric generating facilities.

Fuel Sources

Our power plants use diverse fuel sources. Our fuel mix based on capacity owned at December 31, 2004 and our generation based on actual output by fuel type in 2004 were as follows:


  Capacity Owned
Nuclear   30 % 52 %
Coal   22   32  
Natural Gas   30   10  
Oil   6   1  
Renewable and Alternative (1)   3   4  
Dual (2)   9   1  
Includes solar, geothermal, hydro, and biomass.
Switches between natural gas and oil.

        We discuss our risks associated with fuel in more detail in Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis—Market Risk.
