The States And Cities That Lead (And Lag) In The Clean-Tech Economy | green infographics |

When it comes to clean tech, America could do with some Californication. The state is beating everywhere else hands down, from public policy and capital invested to adoption of electric vehicles and smart meters.

A new ranking of clean-tech leadership from research firm Clean Edge gives the Golden State a score of 91.7 out of 100. The next highest ranked state, Massachusetts, comes in with a score of 77.8. Clean Edge’s state scores combine 70 indicators, while the metro scores look at 20 factors, including things like green buildings and levels of clean electricity.
