Interactive maps detail state-by-state energy production, consumption and expenditures

The U.S. Energy Information Administration website has created extremely useful interactive state-level maps that detail energy production, consumption and expenditures. For example, this map shows Pennsylvania's energy production sites, and provides data showing that the state is the fourth largest coal-producing state since 2012. It shows that the state's natural gas production—primarily from Marcellus Shale—has increased 72 percent since 2011 and that in 2013 the state generated 40 percent of its net electricity from coal and 35 percent from nuclear power.
