Cue your sad face, Washington. When it comes to using its own green energy, Idaho is greener than you. 

In fact, Idaho is greener than everyone. Yep, greenest state in the nation.

(Don't tell them that. It'll ruin their street cred.)

According to government numbers crunched by The Atlantic, Idaho generates 84 percent of its energy from 'green' sources. In the case of the Gem State, it's mostly hydroelectric power. Watch the fun and informative slideshow here.

Dirty, dirty Washington comes in second place, with 72 percent of its energy use covered by green energy, also from hydro power.
