Carbon Emissions Factors

These are the carbon emissions factors used for electricity generation from each of the states. They take into account how much fossil fuel is on the regional electricity grid that the state taps into. They also take into account transmission line losses. They are taken from the spreadsheet called CO2_Elect-Emsn-Factors_2008.xls obtained from the Energy Information Administration on 3/22/2010.
