The question of the best state for renewable energy, like that of the best for green energy, prompts a tricky debate. Is it the state that generates the most renewable energy – Texas? Or is the state that generates the highest percentage of its electricity from renewable sources – Vermont? Or the state that generates the most renewable electricity per capita – Wyoming?
The answer, of course, is to consider all three factors, which means the overall best state for renewable energy isn’t any of those listed. But before going further, it’s important to note what Choose Energy® analysts did – and didn’t – consider renewable energy among statistics provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
