This looks interesting and brings to mind a couple of things.  First, if the rate in a state is higher then I would look for energy efficient design and components.  Secondly, there are cheaper sources that are less expensive like natural gas.  Utility costs should be a consideration.

David -- Well we took third place right behind our neighbors in NY but look at Hawaii!  Guess it's a tradeoff there. I don't think I'd mind paying if I could live there!
