The average American family spends $2,000 per year on energy. But some states are far more energy efficient than others. The personal finance website Wallethub set out to discover which states are doing more with less energy.
Among High Plains states, only Colorado put in a good showing in the rankings. The Centennial State landed at number nine among all states when it comes to energy efficiency. None of the other states in the HPPR listening region made the top half of the list. Kansas landed at number 29, while Nebraska was number 32, and Texas and Oklahoma fell at numbers 37 and 38, respectively.
New York and Vermont were found to be the most energy efficient states in the U.S., while Louisiana and South Carolina are the least frugal with energy.
