Top LED & CFL Cities In US (Map)

January 3rd, 2014 by  

This is pretty cool. A representative of The Home Depot recently sent along this map. As she wrote in the email to me: “The Home Depot combined its U.S. store sales numbers with 2010 Census data for a per capita look at which areas of the country are the top adopters of LED and compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs – offering a behind-the-scenes look at energy-efficient bulb adoption.” (Note: if you can’t read the note in the bottom-left corner, it notes that the markets included in the study had a minimum population of 100,000.)

Pretty interesting, eh?
