US Energy Consumption per Capita By State

By:Mohammad-Ali Bandzar | Jan 13 2019


The graph above is a visualization of the amount of energy used per capita(per person) in each state. Alaska is suprisingly dark red in the graph because although its energy consumption is low. When divided by the population of Alaska it ends up disproportionately high for many factors, with some of the largest being the oil industry in the state and the fact that they still use very inefficient diesal generators to power most of the states grid.
