Net generation

Net generation
For the article on a recent demographic generation, see Generation Z.

Net generation is the amount of electricity generated by a power plant that is transmitted and distributed for consumer use. Net generation is less than the total gross power generation as some power produced is consumed within the plant itself to power auxiliary equipment such as pumps, motors and pollution control devices.

Net Generation = Gross Generation - Usage within the plant (a.k.a. in-house loads)
