Western Pennsylvania has a long history as a leader in producing energy. Pittsburgh became a world leader as a steel producer in part because of the abundance of coal needed to heat enormous furnaces and the power of our rivers to help with transportation. Western Pennsylvania is home to the first US commercial oil well (1859) and the first full-scale nuclear power plant (1957) in the US. Pennsylvania is currently the second largest net supplier of energy to other states. Pennsylvania ranks second only to Texas in natural gas production and is the third highest electricity-generating state in the nation.
