The state electricity data are more organized, so will be presented first. See how your state stacks up! (Yes, I realize that there are way too many significant figures. You’ll have to round.)

To convert to kilowatt-hours per year, divide Watts/Capita by 1000 (conversion to kilowatts), multiply by 24 (now you’re in kilowatt-hours per day), and finally multiply by 365 (number of days in a year). For example, consumption in my state (South Dakota) is about 5100 kWh per year per person.
