A breakdown of US energy consumption per person per year

The average American consumes 36MWH of energy each year, emits 20 tons of CO2, spends $2,000 directly on energy (6% of income) and $4,500 including the energy embedded in goods and servicesĀ (15% of income). A CO2 price of $75/ton may fully decarbonize the US but would absorb another 5% of average income.
