Consumption of electricity in U.S. households

An excellent example of infographics, which is very appealing. It starts with what everyone knows - consumption in households. Then it identifies the sources of energy and compares US with other countries. I wonder if there are countries that have higher than the U.S. per capita consumption? If they are, probably author deliberately omitted them. Including Haiti is also not accidental - after the recent earthquake it is quite firmly engraved in the minds of Americans. 
And now everyone feels motivated to turn off unnecessary lights.
