In a recent analysis, the website WalletHub analyzed the United States’ largest cities to rank the greenest metropolitan regions in the country. In the analysis, cities were scored based on four factors: environment, transportation, energy sources, and lifestyles & policy.
Perhaps not surprisingly, cities in the Bay Area and Northern California as a region scored very well in the survey. Of the the 100 cities included in the study, 5 Bay Area/Northern California cities appeared in the Top Ten:
- San Francisco (#1)
- Fremont (#3)
- San Jose (#5)
- Sacramento (#7)
- Oakland (#10)
Here is a map of the results. The smaller dots represent the best-performing cities:
