Average Electricity Retail Prices

Below is the latest version of our annual U.S. electricity price map. Using the most recent full year of data available from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, our map gives insight into what electricity costs across the country. As always, the map shows that there are stark differences from state to state. While the energy mix available within a state will play a large role in state electricity prices, energy-limiting policies in some states act to artificially elevate prices, making the price of electricity much more burdensome for consumers and businesses. See where your state ranks, and compare it to the national average below.
