The Washington Post has an incredible set of interactive maps detailing how different states deliver all of their power. From nuclear, to coal and hydro, you can get a detailed look at the make up of each state’s power delivery.
It’s encouraging to see some states, such as Washington, generating so much of their power from renewables. And what a clear demonstration that the future is likely a variety of renewable sources, not just one.
Here are some other sources for seeing how your power is delivered.
- MetricMaps has a great map of energy production by zip code.
- The US Energy Information Administration also has a great breakdown of the country’s energy use by type.
- The EPA provides you with details on the energy production in your region based on zip code. It doesn’t look like it tells you exactly what sources make up the power in your home, but give you a bigger picture of the energy production in your region.
