The numbers in this table have been slightly rounded.

United States
For the United States we additionally take into account the amount of energy the state that the user is a citizen of. Following the same methodology as
above, we assign 2,205.4 watts for the federal government. For each state, we take into account the total taxes collected by each state (as detailed by the
Tax Policy Center) and multiply that by the 0.24544 W

for the United States. That's computed the same as above for every other country:

29,776 · 10 9 kWh

consumed,
and
a

of approximately 13,840 · 10 9 USD.
