If you want to do it that way, fine but 

levelsof state, local(allstates) 
foreach s of local allstates { 

is one statement fewer.

You seem to be thinking in R terms here :)). In Stata, this would be
something like

levelsof state
local allstates `r(levels)'
foreach s in `allstates' {
 cluster kmeans <list of power variables> if state == "`s'", k(#)

Of course you would also need to think how you will utilize the results.
