2. This currently stands at about 310 GW. See Table 8.11c  Electric Net Summer Capacity:  Electric Power Sector by Plant Type, 1989-2011, from http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/annual/index.cfm#electricity

3. Table 7.3  Coal Consumption by Sector, 1949-2011, from http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/annual/index.cfm

4. EIA statistics are not disaggregated into coal and other fossil fuels until 1989. See Table 8.11a  Electric Net Summer Capacity:  Total (All Sectors), 1949-2011, from http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/annual/index.cfm

5. Increase from 771 TWh/year to 1341 TWh/yr. See Table 8.2b  Electricity Net Generation:  Electric Power Sector, 1949-2011 from http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/annual/index.cfm

6. See Table 8.2b  Electricity Net Generation:  Electric Power Sector, 1949-2011 from http://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/annual/index.cfm This gives a total solar generation of 5.248 TWh in 1984; total electricity generation was 329.788 TWh in that year.
