Interactive Map — Energy

Vertices LLC proudly presents a new daily map for this week. This interactive map includes energy production and consumption on a state level for the United States. There are three different graphs that may be looked at which include, Total production (Population Adjusted), Total Consumption (Population Adjusted) and Consumption less Production (Population Adjusted). Each of these maps have population that is divided by 1,000 and have energy in trillion BTU’s in order to make easier, more readable numbers for the graph. These three maps help show what impact per person is taking place being that certain states each person has more of an impact on the environment or that certain state are deficient in creating energy for its own citizens.

For larger map details on the project, please visit the Energy website.
