In observance of October as National Energy Awareness Month, WalletHub has released its list of 2017's Greenest Cities in America.
 
In an analysis of 100 cities that measured the “green” lifestyle via 22 indicators ranging from environmental sustainability to clean tech initiatives, WalletHub dubbed San Francisco as the nation’s greenest city. California was home to seven of the top 10 green cities on the list, including San Diego in second place, Fremont in third, San Jose in fifth and the capital in Sacramento in seventh. On the flip side, Corpus Christi, Texas, placed last among the greenest cities.
 
Lubbock, Texas, scored poorest when it came to the median air-quality index, but it also had the lowest annual excess fuel consumption. New York City had the highest annual excess fuel consumption, tying with New Jersey metro markets Newark and Jersey City, but the Big Apple’s massive pedestrian traffic earned it the highest walking score. As for green space, Anchorage, Alaska, has the most green space, 84.2 percent, which is 56.1 times more than in Hialeah, Fla., which only had 1.5 percent available green space.
