Nebraska is the only state that generates electricity entirely by publicly-owned power systems. As of 2018, the statewide average electricity price is the sixteenth-lowest rate in the country, based on the latest federal figures. (Nebraska is sixteenth because Oklahoma and Wyoming have equivalent prices. States are ranked so that equivalent prices are ranked at the same level.) Nationally, electricity costs 17 percent more than it does in Nebraska. Across all sectors, Hawaii has the highest electricity rate (29.18 cents), and Louisiana has the lowest electricity rate (7.71 cents).
