Electricity In Miami Now Derived Mostly From Natural Gas

Miami derives 60% of electricity from natural gas – more than any other major U.S. city, according to analytics firm Energy Points, as cited in the WSJ.

Electric cars that are charged in Miami will receive a higher MPG equivalent than cities like Kansas City that receive most of their power by coal, but lower than cities like Seattle which is predominantly powered by hydroelectricity.

The MPG equivalent rankings only measure environmental footprint. Actual electricity prices in Miami are only slightly below average compared to the rest of the U.S.
