Where Does NY Rank on Energy Consumption Per Capita?

Sep 1, 2017 10:54:18 AM by NuEnergen

On August 9, Forbes contributor Rebecca Lerner released an article detailing which states use the most energy per capita, and the results may surprise you.


The list starts with Louisiana, followed by Wyoming, Alaska, North Dakota and Iowa. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the industrial sector accounts for more than 50% of all power consumption in these lightly populated, but major energy-consuming states. Weather and geography play a key role in their energy consumption: winter in Wyoming, Alaska and North Dakota can be long and bitter, Louisiana bakes in the summer heat, and the majority of people in those areas are driving greater distances on a daily basis. All this translates into big consumption of gas and energy.
