One of the driving forces behind the research, development, and investment in solar energy is energy conservation. Experts have determined that we are stripping the planet of natural resources at a rate far beyond its ability to regenerate. In fact, we would need 1.75 Earths to sustain the current demand of resource consumption. The United States ranks high for overall consumption of natural resources and energy compared to other countries.
In 2019, the average annual electricity consumption per person was 10,649 kWh. However, not all states are created equal. If you are curious about energy consumption by state or which state uses the most energy, this infographic from SolarPower.guide can help; it uses energy consumption data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration to visualize how the states compare.
