ABSTRACT
The article reports that six California cities made the top 10 list of urban centers that draw the most on renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, small-scale hydro, and geothermal energy. Oakland tops the list with 17 percent of its grid generated by renewable energy. Its proximity to wind and solar farms, the latter run by state utility Pacific Gas and Electric, upped its ranking, according to Warren Karlenzig of SustainLane, a San Francisco-based sustainability strategies company that conducted the survey. The midsize city also draws on a small-scale hydro power plant in the Sierra Nevadas.
