Report: South Carolina’s Power Bills Highest In America

A new Energy Information Administration report released in February shows the average South Carolina resident spent $1,753 on electricity in 2016, about $400 more than the U.S. average and nearly twice the average customer in New Mexico, the lowest-expenditure state.

South Carolinians Pay Higher Electric Bills Than Any Other State

Average monthly residential electricity bills vary significantly by state based on a number of factors including average temperatures and the availability of electricity alternatives like natural gas. In southeastern states like South Carolina, a majority of homes use electricity for both winter heating and summer cooling, requiring more kilowatt-hours and thus contributing to higher power bills.
