San Jose Ranked #1 Cleantech City in the Nation

This one is not much of a surprise... in the inaugural Clean Tech Index, San Jose is the top cleantech city in the country. Several metrics were taken into consideration such as the number of LEED-certified green buildings, advanced transportation options, clean electricity, clean investment, electric vehicle registrations, and clean-energy patents. This is an emerging market and one that is very important for San Jose to maintain its leadership in. The top 10 list is below:

1. San Jose
2. San Francisco
3. Portland, Ore.
4. Sacramento
5. Seattle
6. Denver
7. Los Angeles
8. Washington, D.C.
9. Boston
10. Austin
