Most Expensive Electricity Prices

Electricity PylonThe amount we pay for electricity depends upon where we live in the world. In most countries the main source of electricity is generated by burning coal in large industrial power plants. Over 50% of the electricity generated in the United States comes from burning coal. Only 18% of the electricity generated worldwide comes from renewable energy.

Coal is the most polluting way to generate electricity and is the main contributor to global warming. The more electricity we can save the more we are helping the environment.
