Posting in Cities

The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will square off this weekend to determine which team will be the next world champion. 

As you're chomping on those buffalo wings or veggies and ranch dip during the game, you might ask yourself, "I wonder how Denver and Seattle stack up on energy efficiency?" OK, probably not. 

But just in case you're wondering, OPower has crunched some numbers to determine which city wins the energy efficiency battle. Their take? Seattle is the winner. Check out the infographic below for all the stats.

Denver could improve its performance by next year. It's one of 10 cities that pledged this week to join the City Energy Project, an initiative from the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Institute for Market Transformation, to boost the energy efficiency in buildings.
