Household Energy Consumption by State

Want to know how household energy consumption differs by state? Check out the 16 state fact sheets on household energy use now available from the Energy Information Administration. Each fact sheet compares state averages with national averages on a range of energy consumption topics from housing type to number of televisions owned, use of programmable thermostats, and whether a car is parked within 20 feet of an electrical outlet.

In Florida, 27 percent of household electrical consumption is used for air conditioning. In Texas, it's 18 percent and in Wisconsin 1 percent. State fact sheets are also available for Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia.
