Electricity imports in the U.S. 1999-2019

The United States imported 59.05 terawatt hours of electricity in 2019 from Canada and Mexico. Electricity imports to the United States from its neighboring countries have been decreasing for the past few years. Overall, however, electricity imports to the United States are currently higher than in the late 1990s, while electricity exports have simultaneously decreased. In 2019, the U.S. has become a net exporter of natural gas, mostly by pipeline to Canada and Mexico as well as liquefied natural gas (LNG) to other countries.

Most imports from Canada

The development of imports from 1999 to 2017 closely resembles that of imports from Canada alone, which make up the majority of electricity imports to the United States. Canada imports much more electricity to the United States than Mexico. However, imports from Mexico have sharply increased since 2013, whereas imports from Canada have been more variable. Still, electricity imports from Canada are currently higher than in 1999. The United States has a strong demand for electricity and consumes the second-highest amount of any country in the world after China.
