I’m currently working on per capita residential electricity consumption stats for several industrialized countries. As one might expect, the US is the clear victor, out-consuming all challengers by at least two-to-one.

Having heard that California’s per capita consumption has been flat for many years, I’ve looked into and compiled state-by-state numbers for comparison to international figures. Many of these are just astonishing–on the order of 700 watts per capita for the southern states. For comparison, Spain and Italy are both under 200 watts per capita, and California, France, New York state, and Japan are less than 300 watts.

Clearly, we need to do something to alleviate those hot, muggy southern summers!
