1Source: Energy Information Administration. 2012 generation data is through December.
2 This table is a work in progress. Data for Missouri and Nebraska are far less complete than Kansas, though will be updated regularly.
*Amount from known projects only.  Actual amount is certainly higher. Please see small solar projects and small wind projects for details.
#Based on partial year data from nine projects totaling 36 kw. Data from other installations will be added as it is obtained. Generation data for 2011 is for January through December. Data for four projects is incomplete for the year to date. Data for 2012 is through September and for ~9 projects totaling 19 kw. Data for some projects is incomplete for year to date.
##Total for 2010 is based on data from 14 projects totaling 79.8 kw. Total for 2011 includes data for 37 projects totaling 299 kw. Total for 2012 is for 47 projects equaling 430 kw.
