State and Local Energy Data
The State and Local Energy Data (SLED) online tool provides state and local decision makers easy access to energy data for their location. By simply entering a zip code or city, the user can access average and historical retail electricity rates, fuel sources used by the utility for electricity generation, demand by sector, renewable resource maps, alternative fuel transportation prices, policies and incentives for clean energy, and more. The SLED aggregates data from multiple sources, including the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE), and the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC). Having easy access to this data can be helpful for decision makers developing and implementing strategic energy plans.
