(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota is apparently one of the worst states in the country for working from home.

Personal Finance website WalletHub says the Peace Garden State is the second-worst for working remote in the whole U.S.

The study was based on 12 key metrics, including share of workers working from home to Internet costs and cyber security concerns. This despite North Dakota finishing with the lowest residential retail price of electricity, at 9.62 cents per kWh, which is 4.7 times lower than in Hawaii, the state with the highest at 44.78 cents per kWh.

Only Alaska finished lower on the list than North Dakota. The best state for remote workers, according to WalletHub, Delaware.

The personal finance website reports that 12.7% of full-time employees are now working entirely from home, and another 28.2% having some sort of hybrid schedule.
