We Are #1 Green City, Says Popular Science

Looks like we’ve made another one of those top lists, which in this case actually seems very fitting. Portland has been rated as the greenest city in America. We scored 23.1 out of 30, just beating out San Francisco by .1 points.

Popular Science did this particular rating, saying this of Portland:

America’s top green city has it all: Half its power comes from renewable sources, a quarter of the workforce commutes by bike, carpool or public transportation, and it has 35 buildings certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Eugene was in there as well, ranking at number 5. Seattle was number 8.
