Electricity in South Florida now mostly made from natural gas

Posted on Thursday, September 4th, 2014 at 11:26am.

South Florida derives 60% of its electricity from natural gas - more than any other major metropolitan area in the U.S., according to analytics firm Energy Points, cited by the Wall Street Journal.

Electric cars that are charged in Miami or Fort Lauderdale will receive a higher MPG equivalent than cities like Kansas City that receives most of its power by coal, but lower than cities like Seattle that are 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.
