Study says Oklahoma is not a very energy efficient state

Resources - Rural & Agricultural Energy Efficiency


Oklahoma was in the bottom tier of states when it comes to those that are considered to be the most energy efficient, according to a report released by WalletHub.

It was ranked 41st lowest for overall efficiency but 39 for Home Energy efficiency. The state had a number 37 ranking for Auto efficiency.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average U.S. family spends at least $2,000 a year on utilities. Heating and cooling account for more than half the bill. But in 2022, the average consumer also spent another $3,120 on motor fuel and oil.

The Energy Department says by adopting energy-efficient measures, a family could cut its utility costs by as much as 25 percent. And by using a more fuel-efficient vehicle, a family could save $950 a year in transportation costs.

In order to gauge the impact of doing more with less energy, WalletHub measured the efficiency of auto- and home-energy consumption in 48 U.S. states. Due to data limitations, Alaska and Hawaii were excluded from the analysis.
