By 2030, Affordable and Clean Energy – SDG7, aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. This includes decreasing reliance on fossil fuels, addressing the cost of electricity, increasing the use of renewable energy sources, and improving energy efficiency. The U.S. makes up just 4% of the world’s population but consumes 17% of its energy and emits 15% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. Currently, 80% of the energy produced in the US comes from fossil fuels, and 40% of all energy goes to making electricity. One of every three households faces challenges with paying their energy bills each month. The average monthly energy bill for US households is larger in states where most of the energy is generated from Fossil fuels or where markets are non-regulated. The United Nations has defined 5 Targets and 6 Indicators to track progress towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goal of Affordable and Clean Energy by 2030. The data below takes a look at key indicators in the U.S. related to average electricity bill costs, renewable energy, fossil fuels, electric utility company ownership, and more through the lens of government and social sector data. On the map below, you can view statistics nationally, by state, or a collection of states.

Notes: Residential sector: Includes private households and apartment buildings where energy is consumed primarily for space heating, water heating, air conditioning, lighting, refrigeration, cooking, and clothes drying. Negative Values in Energy Generation: Some states, such as New Jersey, show a negative value of renewable energy generation. This is because they use more energy from Fossil Fuels to pump water up to water reservoirs during off-peak seasons, to use renewable energy during the peak season. Still, overall, they burn more fossil fuel to create renewable energy than the clean energy generated during the year. See details in this Wikipedia entry.
