Energy Efficiency Study

Energy Efficiency Study

South Dakota ranks 30th in energy efficiency study


News Release - October 15, 2019

UNDATED - Happy National Energy Awareness Month! With the U.S. Department of Energy estimating families could save up to 25% on utilities with energy efficient measures, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019’s Most & Least Energy-Efficient States as well as accompanying videos.

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 $2,109 on motor fuel and oil — WalletHub compared the auto- and home-energy efficiency in 48 U.S. states. Due to data limitations, Alaska and Hawaii were excluded from our analysis.

South Dakota ranked 30th in the study. The state scored well for its home energy efficiency (10th) -- but scored poorly ofr its automobile energy efficiency (46h). Wyoming ranked 38th overall.
