Figures for fuels used in electricity generation

In glossy leaflets enclosed with bills, domestic electricity suppliers have presented figures for the fuels used in electricity generation. The photograph shows figures presented by E.on last year to consumers in Cambridge and by npower more recently to consumers in Birmingham. According to these figures in both cases, for the year ending in March 2012, around 30% of electricty was generated from coal.
