San Francisco came in second to Boston for its progress in clean energy.
Solar Energy Insights ranked 75 US cities for their energy policies and programs, focusing mainly on large, metropolitan cities around the country.
Solar Energy Insights, part of SolarPower.Guide, is run by data scientist and clean energy aficionado Joe Robertson. He took data from the 2019 City Clean Energy Scorecard, with the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).
ACEEE graded these 75 cities in 5 policy areas: local government operations, community-wide initiatives, building policies, energy and water utilities, and transportation policies. Each city had a total of 100 points to be awarded, and San Francisco scored 71.5, making it the second-most progressive city for clean energy in the United States.
Boston scored a whopping 77.5 points, mostly thanks to its progress with building policies. The lowest-ranked city was Oklahoma City, OK, with 5.5 points.
