(St. Paul MN-) This is National Energy Awareness Month, and Minnesota did well in a recent energy efficiency study of the United States. With residential electricity consumption increasing this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Most & Least Energy-Efficient States.

To gauge the financial impact of doing more with less energy — the average American household spends at least $2,000 per year on utilities and another $2,094 on motor fuel and oil — WalletHub compared the auto- and home-energy efficiency in 48 U.S. states. Due to data limitations, Alaska and Hawaii were excluded from our analysis.

1. Utah

2. New York

3. Massachusetts

4. Minnesota

5. Rhode Island

49. South Carolina.
