Compare data to explore the relationship between two variables. For example, the closer the data points come to a diagonal line, the stronger the relationship.
North Carolina is one of the most energy intensive states and, because of historically low energy prices, it is also one of the most energy inefficient.

North Carolina was first in the southeast to pass a Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (REPS), requiring energy providers to use renewable energy.
