America’s Ten Most Energy Efficient Cities

When it comes to going green and adopting alternative energy sources, increasing energy efficiency is incredibly important. After all the cheapest and cleanest unit of energy is one that isn’t used in the first place. The challenge with energy efficiency is more of a financial one. Upgrading buildings and infrastructure to be energy efficient is something that is usually pretty expensive in the short term but pays off over a longer time horizon and that’s a tough call when you have government offices up for election every two years in some cases. The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy recently put together a report where they listed the country’s 34 biggest cities in order of energy efficiency. The factors that they considered were local government operations, community-wide initiatives, building policies, utility policies, and transportation policies. What follows is a list of the top ten most energy efficient big cities in the country:

1. Boston, MA
2. Portland, OR
3. New York City, NY
4. San Francisco, CA
5. Seattle, WA
6. Austin, TX
7. Washington, DC
8. Minneapolis, MN
9. Chicago, IL
10. Philadelphia, PA
