Wyoming Ranks Low On 2015 Most Energy Efficient States List
With October being National Energy Awareness Month and the average household spending nearly $2,000 a year on energy bills, the personal finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Most and Least Energy Efficient States.
