Funds spent for the energy consumed in, or delivered to, a building during a given period of time. All expenditure statistics are presented on an annual basis for the survey calendar year. The total dollar amount includes State and local taxes, fuel adjustment charges, system charges, and demand charges. The total dollar amount excludes merchandise, repair charges, and service charges. Data on energy expenditures were not collected by end uses separately. For example, although it might be known that electricity was used in some buildings for heating, the expenditures for electricity reported for those buildings would typically include other uses of electricity as well (such as lighting and water heating). Total expenditures were reported as well as “Expenditures per Million Btu”—the aggregate ratio of a group of buildings' total expenditures for a given fuel to the total consumption of that fuel and “Expenditures per Square Foot”—the aggregate ratio of a group of buildings' total expenditures for a given fuel to the total floorspace in those buildings. (See Consumption.)
