Solar Power Leaders — 10 Metro Areas Leading The Way In Solar Power Per Capita
March 6th, 2014 by Jake Richardson
Editor’s note: Absolute rankings give far too much credit to big cities, countries, and companies. Absolute numbers are important for some purposes, but if you really want to see who is taking the lead on a specific technology, relative metrics are what you want. That’s why I put together rankings of the top solar power countries per capita & per GDP, top solar power states per capita & per GDP, and top wind power countries per capita and per GDP every year. However, I’ve never done this for metro areas, so I’m thrilled to see that 1BOG has just gone and done so. Enjoy Jake’s article on the new rankings, reposted from Planetsave:
