Whether it's a renewable source of energy such as hydropower, solar power or wind power, or a source like oil or gas, countries around the world heavily rely on different sources of electricity to help power their land. From Dewesoft comes this fascinating infographic that lists out the most common electricity sources for each country around the world. Solar power is becoming more popular as a primary form of electricity, but no one is using solar power more for their electricity than Puerto Rico, who uses an estimated 825.09 kWh per capita. In fact, Puerto Rico is the only country in the world to use more than 800 kWh per capita, as the other countries in the top five for solar power include Australia (730.94 kWh per capita), Japan (667.72 kWh per capita), Germany (608.71 kWh per capita) and Cook Islands (596.06 kWh per capita).
