Here's an email I got - and I'm not shocked by this, at all:
I’m writing to let you know about a new report by Porch looking at the U.S. states with the most and least expensive electricity. Despite the renewed political back and forth over energy production in the wake of the recent Texas storm, renewables will be the fastest-growing contributor to electricity production in the U.S. in the decades to come. In fact, the share of electricity generated from renewables is expected to double to about 40% by the year 2050. Thanks to government incentives and new technologies, states emphasizing renewable energy production have managed to lower energy costs for their residents. To find the states with the most and least expensive electricity, researchers ranked states based on the average electricity price for all sectors in cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh).
In Connecticut, the average electricity price for all sectors is 18.66¢ per kWh, compared to the national average of 10.54¢ per kWh. Out of all U.S. states, Connecticut has the 3rd most expensive electricity.
Below you’ll find a summary of the analysis with data for Connecticut—please feel free to republish or use the findings in your own write-up. If you choose to use the analysis, please link to the original report, which includes a table with data on all 50 states: https://porch.com/advice/states-with-the-most-least-expensive-electricity
