Usage: New York
Due to its large population, New York is one of the highest energy consuming states in the nation. However, New Yorkers are one of the lowest electricity users per capita. Because New Yorkers are so energy efficient they were able to export slightly more energy than they consumed in 2015. While the bulk of electricity consumed comes from natural gas and nuclear, renewable sources have grown considerably in New York. About 80% of their renewable energy comes from hydroelectric and NY has a goal to have half of their energy come from renewable sources by 2030.
