According to a recent ranking released by WalletHub, Colorado is one of the most energy-efficient states in the country.

Colorado ranked 7th among 48 states included in the data set (Hawaii and Alaska were excluded due to data limitations). This ranking was based on a number of categories. Colorado ranked the strongest when it came to "Home Energy Efficiency", coming in 4rd in this category.  Colorado also ranked 16th in "Auto Energy Efficiency."

The most energy-efficient state included in the study was Utah, followed by New York and Massachusetts. South Carolina was ranked as the least energy-efficient.
