• California’s per capita energy consumption has declined 11.1 percent from 2019. This was the second consecutive year where per capita energy consumption decreased since 2014. Much of that per capita decline might be the drop in total energy consumption—California consumed 867,347 BTU less energy in 2020 compared to 2019. In fact, California has experienced the most significant energy consumption drop among its peers over the last two decades—29.4 percent lower than 1990 level, followed by Florida (-26.5%), Texas (-22.0%), and New York (-20.4%). The state’s ability to simultaneously lower energy demand as it adds population is encouraging, and it contributed to the increase of energy productivity level.
