The article is devoted to a modern situation in the U.S. electricity analysis per state, where renewable energy consumption has grown drastically since the early 2000s. The article estimates electricity restructuring results and their influence on the modern state of this branch of industry. We attempted to assess the influence of various factors involved in the economic growth of the U.S. per state using the methods of cluster and panel data analysis.
