Wisconsin has some of the highest electricity prices in the nation, although the average customer spends far less on electricity than in most states.
The average residential price for a kilowatt of electricity was 10.67 cents in 2016, according to numbers released this week by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Only 15 states had higher residential rates, a reversal from 20 years ago, when Wisconsin had the 14th lowest rates in the nation.
Commercial rates are 15th highest in the nation, while industrial rates are 18th. . .
