Happy National Energy Awareness Month! With New York City recently announcing its three-year plan to uphold the Paris climate accord, the first among nearly 250 U.S. cities that pledged to do so, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2017’s Most & Least Energy-Efficient States.
To gauge the financial impact of doing more with less energy — the average American household spends at least $2,000 per year on utilities and another $1,900 on motor fuel and oil — WalletHub’s analysts compared the auto- and home-energy efficiency in 48 U.S. states. Due to data limitations, Alaska and Hawaii were excluded from their analysis.
Energy Efficiency in Rhode Island (1=Most Energy-Efficient; 24=Avg.)
- 11th – Home Energy Efficiency
- 19th – Vehicle-Fuel Efficiency
- 2nd – Transportation Efficiency
