Last month, I did a post on Tampa Bay ranking at the bottom of the “Green Cities” list.
Turns out, Florida (as a state) doesn’t fare so well either. It ranks third in overall energy use nationwide, only behind Texas and California. The report was issued by the New York State Energy Research Development Authority, which looked at both energy use and energy efficiency.
New York is the second most energy-efficient state in the United States on a per-capita basis, behind Rhode Island. The least-efficient states are Wyoming and Alaska, ranked 50th and 51th, respectively. The study includes Washington, D.C.
