Here are two lists, for those of you into that kind of thing:
First, Sustainlane — which seems to produce a list every few weeks, no? — has a list of the Top Ten Cities for Renewable Energy. That’s the cities that provide citizens with the most green power. They are:
1. Oakland, CA
2. Sacramento/SF/San Jose, CA (tie)
3. Portland, OR
4. Boston, MA
5. San Diego, CA
6. Austin, TX
7. Los Angeles, CA
8. Minneapolis, MN
9. Seattle, WA
10. Chicago, IL
Oakland, huh? Maybe Van‘s doing something right. Read the whole thing for details.
Second, from Forbes via MSNBC, a list of the Top 12 Greenest Cars of 2007. Six are hybrids, and six are “just old-fashioned, gas-powered vehicles that happen to be small and efficient, with low emissions.”
Annoyingly, the story never just lists the cars, so I can’t reproduce the list here, but it’s a reasonably interesting story.
