Usage: Detroit, MI

Detroit is one of the largest cities in the Midwest and residents consume a lot of energy. However, like the rest of the state, Detroit residents use less energy per capita 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.
