Where does your city rank on energy efficiency? According to non-profit group the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, Boston is the most efficient, while Oklahoma City is the least.

The council judged cities across five criteria: how well cities are reducing their own energy use, what they're doing to fund community efficiency initiatives such as retrofitting, their policies related to development, initiatives with energy and water utilities, and transportation.

Other cities in the top ten most efficient are: New York, DC, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, Austin, and Denver.
