[PHOTOS] Powering New York
New York is the City that never sleeps, and it shows. The metropolis, which is home to more than 8.4 billion people, uses roughly 60,000,000,000 kWh of energy annually.
Using a plethora of energy sources such as oil, natural gas, liquefied natural gas, solar, wind, and hydro, the guys at VisualCapitalist asked the question: What would it take to power the Big Apple for a year with each individual energy source?
Liquefied natural gas
Note: The numbers are based off of average electricity consumption, assuming that energy can be banked in times of surplus and used during times of deficiency.
