Michigan residents consistently use less energy throughout the year than the national average. On average, they use 15% less energy per month than the rest of the US. Despite their cold winters, Michigan residents still use less energy on average during the winter months. This is because many Michigan residents and businesses use natural gas instead of electricity to heat their homes. Michigan is surrounded by lakes which make summer milder than many surrounding states. This means residents don't need to use their AC as much to keep their homes cool.
