I have often wondered just how green my home state of Florida is and now I know. Well at least I know how energy efficient Florida is - we are tied for 27th place with North Carolina and New Mexico. Not bad, but there is plenty of room for improvement and states like Michigan, Illinois, Nebraska, Tennessee, Alabama and Maryland scored big showing the most improvement this year.
