NPR has created a series of interactive maps that expose the electric grid in the United States. Five different renditions of the US power system show off how and where electricity is generated. The eye-opening  presentation breaks down each state's usage of gas, hydroelectric, nuclear, geothermal, biomass, wind, oil, coal and solar. This informative visualization helps to explore this usually hidden infrastructure network in a clear way.
